Coming home from work, I was on the highway exit ramp when a bird flew in front of my car and onto a tree. At first I thought it was a hawk, but then realized it was an owl. I pulled the car over, got out and began taking pictures with my 70-200 lens. I wish I could have gotten closer but it flew off. I wanted to submit this photo even though it is not even close to being "ribbon" quality. Under the circumstances its a trophy shot for me.

Wonderful. The drops on the branches add a lot too.
