The photo of the owl was taken by me. I was driving down a four lane highway and saw something sitting on the center line. I turned around and it was this guy. I thought it was a baby, so I poked at it with a flashlight, to make sure he wasn't going to bite. He didn't, so I reached down and picked him up. I put him in the passenger seat and he just sat there for a little bit. I went to complete reports and he bacame more and more active, eventually flying up and landing on the steering wheel. He just sat there for the photo op and watched me while I did my reports. I contacted a wildlife specialist, who came and picked him up. He was released back into the wild at the Sweetwater State Park.
I later found out this was a full grown owl.
