Owl Camouflage

Quote of the Day

When love is not madness it is not love.

— Pedro Calderon de la Barca


I saw these three pictures today and I was stunned by the effectiveness of an owl's camouflage. I occasionally see owls – there is a great horned owl that lives near my house and it is amazing watching it fly at dusk. It has a very large wingspan.
