Great Horned Owl



I think it’s the eyes–giant circular eyes–that get me about this bird.

They are simply amazing birds to see, and I’m always amazed.

Seen up close, they are pretty large.

The owl in the above photo flew when I was quite near it (I hadn’t seen it until it flew), and then landed in a tree near me to stare at me, allowing me to get these photos.

I just Love the way this owl focused so tightly on your camera lens, trying to judge if the item with its big eye might be something good to eat…is it a large, juicy one-eyed frog? 🙂
