It's all in the eyes... by cricketumpire It's all in the eyes... by cricketumpire

    “To be honest, owls aren’t the brightest of birds, amazing as they are; parrots and crows are much smarter.  It’s all in the eyes: those

    magnificent piercing optics are what make all owls look like they are deep in concentrated scrutiny and steeped in long-lost knowledge.” 

                                                                                                                   ~ Matt Sewell,  Owls: Our Most Enchanting Bird      :iconowlplz:

The reflections  :?     He was displaying for an owl rescue charity on a market stall. The leaflets and charity novelties reflected noticeably in his eyes.
