Old fellow – a Greyish Eagle Owl.

I found this huge Greyish Eagle Owl in Ethiopia. He is a bit in the years, the feathers does not fit perfectly but he is a very big and handsome owl; sitting almost every day in a dense tree that is passed by many people and few of them notice him.

  1. He looks old. Seems not to want to look at you with both eyes at once! How many interesting things we miss when we do not stop to look more carefully.
