Great Horned Owl

By gregster09
Though this owl was captive, he was positioned in a very natural setting. I find it interesting how Great Horned Owls always have a fierce look to them.

The fierce look comes from the display feathers on there heads, they create like and arch above the eyes.
sorry my mistake
i belive that's an eagle owl

An eagle owl is the GH's European cousin. They do look pretty similar.

Wow , nice photo :clap: at first i thought that it was free , not in captivity :D!!! I have a photo with a wild owl 2, but I'm not sure what type of owl is it ... it seems like a great horned owl but I can;t say that it's 100% . Have a look and tell me what you think :D --> Wild Owl

That's a long-eared owl. Very similar, but the face is different and the body is smaller. Nice shot!

Great shot. This owl is beautiful. I just took a few shots of an great horned owl. This one has a much darker feather color than the one I was shooting.

He looks amazing, they always look so fierce. :) I hear them in the trees sometime, they're really loud. I like this one's different colors and the ear tufts are cool too :)
