Here are three owls: an Eastern Screech Owl, a Great Horned Owl, and a Barred Owl.Great owl shots - are they all wild? If so, I'm extremely impressed. If not, they are still beautiful photos, but I will know you, too, are a mere mortal. I love owls, but they are so freaking hard to find out in the wild! Here's my best owl shot to date - a very noisy little Barred Owl:
In India there is a common insult dished out with the phrase "Ullu ke Patthe", the literal translation of which works out to "Owl's disciple". Owls are considered pretty dumb birds and the phrase "Ullu ke Patthe" is used to call someone an "Idiot". Most average Indians use this phrase a fair few times in a day!
Very few Indians can look at an owl shot without a chuckle.
