Great Gray Owl incoming by gregster09 Great Gray Owl incoming by gregster09
A northern owl of the boreal forests, the Great Gray Owl makes occasional irruptions into more southern areas of Canada. These large owls are completely unafraid of people, and go about their hunting routine even with an audience.

Great photo, it almost looks like an optical illusion when you run your eyes over its wing patterns.

This is an amazing photo, wow. Would you let me use it as a reference for my zoology project? I'm planning on making a flying owl and this is the best photogrpah of one I've found. I'll include a citation.

Better be quick to its hole, or soon to be; one less vole.

woah, nice pic! The expression of its eyes is just frightening and fascinating O.o Additionally I like its posture. Good thing that these owls aren't afraid of humans, otherwise it maybe wouldn't have been possible to take this photo.
