I come to you by Stefano Ronchi, via 500px - I cannot stop looking at the eyes. And the wings . . . they are almost frightening in their power and beauty, and I very much suppose that they strike fear into the little animals the owl is pursuing.

My family rescued a baby barn owl when I was a kid. He fell from a nest in the rafters of an old cotton mill. We took him to the Carolina Raptor Center in Charlotte, where he grew into a healthy adult -- save for a constant head-cocking tic. Needless to say, they did not release him into the wild. He became one of their beloved mascots.
Eagle owl-what a great pic! The Eagle Owl is a very large and powerful bird, smaller than the Golden Eagle but larger than the Snowy Owl. It is sometimes referred to as the world's largest owl, although Blakiston's Fish Owl is slightly heavier on average and the Great Grey Owl is slightly longer on average.
