Taken during the eclipse of 8-21-17

Seems the interesting stuff was on the ground, not in the sky.

I believe it's an eastern screech owl.

It's about 8-10 inches tall, from the tip of it's tail feathers to the top of it's head.

Not very big at all.

What are they shadows of?

The shadows are of a tree, during an eclipse. It's just the light filtering through the leaves.

I can't explain the optical phenomena, but it's similar to what happens when you make a pinhole camera out of a box.

( Those crescents are just multiple images of the sun, with the moon blocking most of it. )
