Noisy Neighbor

Last night this noisy little neighbor was demanding attention. A juvenile Barred Owl, it posted itself on top of a dead tree and was screeching up a storm. Nothing seemed to scare this little guy. Whether it was our two sheep dog, me sounding like Sasquatch, or another owl wanting it's roost - he stood his ground longer than I could stay up and take pictures. Needing all the light possible, I used my Nikkor 80-200mm 2.8 lens and an off camera flash to capture the photo.
