Great Horned Owls and old wood seem to go together like salt and pepper, stars and stripes or peanut butter and jelly, they are a great combination! I love the character of old wood, the knots, the tones and how the colors of the wood and the Great Horned Owl are often similar. The darkened window of this old granary is a great contrast to all the brown tones too. This is the female parent of the Great Horned Owlet I posted here but the adult is in a different window.

I guess you can all tell that I love owls!

    Thanks Jane, Ingrid, Utahbooklover and Patty. I adore owls and love sharing images of them.

    Patty, glad this touched you.

    Classic shot with character plus in the ruffled feathers.

    Unbelievably gorgeous, Mia~! The way the wood complements the owls in these shots is beyond perfect. And then, the frame within the frame. There is everything to love in this photo, I’m in awe.

    I know I’ve already told you about the GH I raised years, so you know this is “eye candy” and a tug at the heart strings for me. I love owls, old weathered wood and deep. dark, barn windows, too. Thanks for a great shot.
