Flying Owl by Lupinicious Flying Owl by Lupinicious
Since the wolves are quite lazy the past few months, I decided to spend some of my time at Tierpark Sababurg photographing birds of prey last weekend.

Here's one of an owl in mid-flight. The markings, feathers and eyes of this animal were captivating, so I have to upload a few photos of it :-)

With this particular photo I had to do a bit of background work, since there was someone standing in the background... hope it doesn't show too much. Enjoy! :)

well, it's not really fur at all.. but he/she does have good crypsis, if that's what you mean. Was this a educational bird, or a rehab and release?

LOL! I was wondering what's with all these "owls have no fur" comments until I just re-read the description :D
Ah, you can tell I rarely take photos of birds but of animals with fur instead *g*

Educational. It's some kind of flight show.

Oh, it's okay. ^_^ I totally would do something like that to, if I wasn't inculcated with science 24/7.

I was wondering about it being educational, because it looks as though the legs had been banded - I am not as familiar with eastern eagle owls as their North American doppelganger, the Great Horned, though.. So I am not sure whether or not that is a pattern indicative of captivity, or genetics. ^^'

Indeed :-) I was wondering what your comment was all about but now that I re-read the description I see :D

Oh well. It happens. XD I refer to hair sometimes as fur.
