  • Every once in a while you get a bonus while on assignment. After shooting the interior of the famous Dunham Castle in Wayne, a Great Horned owlet near the grounds was pointed out to me by a volunteer guide. Apparently it had been hanging around the past few hours in the same spot, watching visitors come and go. I took a walk down a garden path and was able to get some shots of the little (big!) guy watching me. It quickly became bored of me and my camera and went back to his castle people-watching activity.
