It was a beautiful summer day here in Iowa.  I've been traveling a lot lately.  While there are so many wonderful places to see in this country, I find none as beautiful as my own backyard.  This is one of the many Barred Owls that lives in the woods near my house.  When he first started hanging out on the downspout, he would fly away when I got too close.  Now, he considers me for a bit before he closes his eyes and takes a nap.  I guess he's decided that my weeding is of no threat to him.  Having him here is such a privilege.  Plus, I have to admit that I have much less of a problem with rabbits.
