Prey Spotted - Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming

I have been going through my Grand Teton images from May again and realized that I must have shot over 300 images of the Great Gray Owl that our group spotted. Even with my relatively short telephoto zoom lens and my lack of skills with bird photography, you would expect that I got a couple of good shots. I was particularly proud of one that I posted a couple months ago when I got him in flight. I was so excited about that shot that I neglected to look at some of the photos I took right before it. This is one of those shots where the owl had just spotted its prey and was beginning to launch itself toward dinner.
