Owls are absolutely stunning creatures – their deep and piercing eyes and haunting hoots are the stuff of myths and folktales. Perhaps that's why we love these beautiful owl photos so much!


Show Full Text

Since ancient times, owls have captured the imaginations of various cultures as harbingers of death, doom, bad omens, or wisdom.

For rodents, some of these portents are true – owls are excellent and highly adapted hunters with excellent hearing, sharp night-time vision, silent wings and deadly talons. They rarely miss their mark.

If you have any beautiful owl photos, we'd love it if you added them to this list and voted for your favorites as well!
