/// Is this a beautiful BROWN? Brown wood owl ...The neat hardy beak, the piercing eyes, perfectly lined up feathers, the ready claw-talons anchoring him on his perch. He "knows" someone is looking at him. I'm smiling. NC &:) ///
This must be edited or the owl has a cataract. Owl eye color range are yellow, brown, orange, dark/black. There are no natural blue eyed owls. Their second lid might make eyes appear grey, but not blue.
Long-tailed Sylph by Judd Patterson, via Flickr. One of 42 amazing hummingbird species that I saw in 10 days in Ecuador. I have many, many images to post, but most will probably wait until after the holidays. Enjoy!
