Taken in the moonlight. This young great horned owl perched itself on a bird house pole near our house, turning his head constantly and pausing occasionally to peer in at me. He was completely nonplussed by the flash on my camera.
Several years ago a much larger horned owl flew right over me, my cat and dog as we walked across the yard after nightfall. I was very startled by his presence and quickly bundled up my cat to protect him from the silent hunter in the night..
Noctiphobia - fear of the night,
Ornithophobia - fear of birds, or
Ommetaphobia - fear of eyes
