Great Grey Owl (Strix nebulosa) in a field
Last Sunday I got to see this handsome Great Grey Owl out in a field. It had probably been hunting voles, it's favourite food. But by the time I got there, it was watching a small group of birders that was watching it.
On a fence post
Curious, the owl moved in closer to check us all out. After a couple of minutes, it flew into a tree and turned its back on us. I guess we were boring!
I am connecting to Stewart M's Wild Bird Wednesday HERE
it's SO beautiful; what a sight and what a photo opportunity!
Spectacular find and gorgeous captures.
These are wonderful! How lucky you were to be able to see this in person.
Dear EG, this owl is adorable and your pictures are beautiful, love these portraits!
Beautifully captured, but they (owls) always look as though they are judging you and finding you wanting.
It was certanly giveing you the evil eye
Awesome photo of a very handsome animal.
Owls are so interesting and your photo's are so clear. With those big eyes they seem to be taking everything in.
Two very good owl photos.
Mr Owl is certainly not boring even if he was bored with you... and he is so very handsome.

They are the keepers of magic and wisdom, and if ever one is lucky enough to meet one in real life, you are truly blessed. A most stunning capture here.

WOW! What an amazing opportunity to see and photograph this majestic bird.
Really wonderful photos of the grey owl. I love the second one.
I've been a lifelong owl lover but have only very rarely seen any. So that means that you have just made my day!
They are beautiful owls. I read about a photographer baiting a Great Gray Owl, he made a lot of birders mad.
Your photos are wonderful.
I love owls and hardly every get to see them in the wild. Your photos of this one are fantastic!
This is one wonderful post! Maybe someday I'll bump into one.
Nice. I like how he is looking at you.
Wow! He is really gorgeous!
He's wonderful, EG!
Just look at those piercing eyes. He definitely has the birders in his sightline. Amazing shots.
That is amazing! He looks grumpy too lol
I really envy all of the birds that stop by.
Owls are wonderful birds. You were lucky to see this one highlighted like this. I have taken owl photos but I never find them in a spot where I can get a real "portrait" of the bird, so I have never posted a photo of an owl.
He is gorgeous! Reminds me of a Bateman painting.
Oh wow, you were in the right place at the right time and got some great shots. He is so handsome.
You always have the coolest Owl pictures. I have only seen them twice. A Burrowing Owl and a Spotted Owl sitting on our fence post. That's it. Dang!!
I love the way owls give you the most direct stare :) brilliant portrait, I didn't realise they had such tiny beaks..
Mijn lievelings vogel "SCHITTEREND"!!!
What a magnificent bird! Unlucky that you didn't see it hunting which must be a wonderful sight.
Fantastic photos of this wonderful bird.
This bird is beautiful.

I just love owls! What a fabulous shot on the fence post!
What a great opportunity!
Very nice job photographing this truly magnificent owl!

The owl is gorgeous!
At the top of my wish, dream list for decades and one day, I pray it happens. Until then, I so enjoy seeing the captures of images that others get. These are amazing!
