Barred Owl at Night

I was at my parent's letting the dog out when I spotted this owl in a maple tree that was partially illuminated by a spotlight on my parent's deck. He/She was sitting very stoic in the tree and was not bothered by my presence. After a few moments the owl came down from the tree and sat in the best light that was available (the spotlight). The owl was very aware of my presence but did not seem to mind at all. He/She would turn their head away from me and I would make a clicking noise and they would turn back around and stare at me. I was shooting on a tripod with the D7000 and 80-400VR. Unfortunately it was dark and I didn't have the time I would have liked to set up my gear. I shot this in jpeg, which I rarely do and would have preferred the flexibility of RAW. Oh well, next time!
