Owl Print

Most beautiful. My husband and I live near a preserve and we see so many beautiful birds and other wildlife. Our favorites seems to be the many owls. We take many photos and would like to know how we send in our pictures in for your many readers to enjoy.

My dad was friends with Roger Tory Peterson and I have an enormous love for earlier drawings/prints of our feathered friends. Gorgeous! ;)

Eagle Owl

Ranging from Portugal to Japan, the Eurasian Eagle Owl, the nominal Bubo species and close cousin to our own Great-horned Owl, is a magnificent and tremendously successful diurnal predator. In Lear's studied rendition, the Eagle Owl evinces a posture of utmost assurance, tawny and black stripes guiding one's gaze upward to the partial facial discs which house the alarmingly yellow eyes. The ear tufts are casually splayed off either side of the head in an almost whimsical manner, but the firm grip of the talons and heroic swelling of the breast make clear the potential for sudden violence should anyone disturb its solitude.
