Dutch Fork Tennis Center’s Newest Resident — “The Barred Owl”


You never know when a photo-op will present itself so you better have a camera on hand at all times. I took this photograph near the Dutch Fork Tennis Center in  Irmo, South Carolina.

An opportunistic predator, the Barred Owl feeds on mice, rats, squirrels, and shrews of other species. It hunts by waiting on a high perch at night, or flying through the woods and swooping down on prey. A Barred Owl can sometimes be seen hunting before dark. This typically occurs during the nesting season or on dark and cloudy days.

I’m no professional photographer, but this majectic bird of prey allowed me to get close enough to snap this shot. To see this photo and my illustrations of the world’s top tennis players go to my profile page at Fine Art America.  http://fineartamerica.com/profiles/4-steven-white.html

  1. Once you have done this, set the burn speed to 4x and click Burn and wait for it to complete.
    Aside from the obvious difficulties of pitching so brilliantly in such a high pressure
    situation, Larsen’s feat is even more impressive when one considers that the Dodgers had four future Hall of Famers in their lineup: Duke Snider, Jackie Robinson, Roy Campanella and Pee Wee Reese. Harry Potter Hogwarts is one more entry into this new series of LEGO board games.
