Oregon Coast – Total Solar Eclipse – 2017

That was SO fun!  I’m going to be watching reruns (from other photographers) for a long time.  Below is a slideshow of my stills and then a video of the total part of the solar eclipse.  In the slideshow, the totality occurred right after the perfect smile, then the sun came out on the right side of the moon.

See my video below of the total solar eclipse.  (I do not have a DSLR camera.)  We got to see the corona but the camera didn’t capture it as it looked with the naked eye.

Baby Barred Owl

We could hear a high-pitched bird sound outside our window after dark so we had to investigate.  After some trial and error I finally got a fuzzy photo of the baby Barred Owl.

I recorded the sound and it sounds just like other recordings of a baby Barred Owl screech that I found.  Listen here:
