I could have sworn I'd posted this, but apparently not! An eagle owl at Parc Omega, watching me warily. I love owls
he's like, "get that damn camera offa me..."
The eyes and the markings display that this is actually an Eagle Owl, probably Eurasian. Still a nice shot, though!
Good grief, you're right. I just looked at the full-body shots I took of him. The heads are similar, but the body markings are very different, and he has the vertical stripes of an Eagle Owl. Very surprising, since they're not native to the area at all.
what a gorgeous Great Horned Owl!! Love them feathers and those eyes!!
He looks quite serious!
At first I thought it might have been a long-eared owl because of that stare, but the face is a little too round.
