“A wise old owl sat on an oak: the more he saw the less he spoke:The less he spoke the more he heard: Why aren’t we like that wise old bird?” ~ Charles M Schulz
“Happy Wordless Wednesday, dear friends! It’s time to share your favorite family friendly photos – with or without words – at the friendliest party in town!”
What a great capture of rare wisdom! 🙂
Thanks Cathy. 🙂
Even his posture seems wise 😀
I love owls and he’s a beauty! 🙂
Thanks so much, bluebee. 🙂
Re one of the comments, I think he looks inscrutable not constipated :8
Definitely. I agree with you. 🙂
“The less he spoke, the more he heard.” – Love that … and the photo.
Thanks, Patricia. 🙂
What a great shot AD 🙂 One of my favourite birds 😀
Thanks, Paula. 🙂
Now this guy has a secret!
And he’s not letting it out at any cost. 🙂
That bird is a beauty!! Wow!
Yes he really is magnificent. 🙂
First time I’ve ever seen a constipated owl
well thank you Patricia
Poor thing! He’s just thinking deep thoughts. 🙂
What an amazing photo! Love it!!!
Thanks so much. 🙂
I love the stance, half open wings and eyes half shut, beautifully caught expression
Thanks so much, Pommepal. 🙂
He looks quite satisfied just to BE. Maybe that’s the trick…
I think you could be right, adee. 🙂
Reblogged this on scrapydo and commented:
Very wise owl!
Thanks so much, scrapydo. 🙂
Thanks. RV. 🙂
I don’t know what it is about owls. but I just think they’re beautiful!
ough, i have ”a heart attack” cos of the quote……..
Wordless Wednesdays? I’m new to your blog, but I think that’s an amazing idea 😀
I guess owls are much more introspective because they are carrying all that knowledge in their head. ~~~~ : – ).
Majestic owl, at peace with himself and the world – love it 🙂
Very nice photo of the owl, s/he looks so relaxed, and very good quote you chose as well. 🙂
Thanks, magsx2. 🙂
good evening, my good friend , how you are. whether it was a rough day. ? In the picture a wise owl, what about the owl. Maybe that’s not an owl , but no link here I ‘ll comment on it tonight and I’ll tell you in our owl mean in dreams
According to folklore, dreamers someone close to you will be sick. Hear and not see the owl – soon you will die a very close person . See and hear the owl – the announcement of great happiness . Owl in flight – are surrounded by false friends. My interpretation is still somewhat or quite otherwise
, we can not be interpreted separately from the concrete owl dream and the dreamer … in this correspondence with me dreaming it is evident …
Thanks so much for your comment, Stefan. It’s very interesting indeed.:)
no matter what the bicycle is a joke ! I was driving and the horse-drawn cart 🙂
I simply adore owls. I’m so thrilled whenever I hear one. I used to hear them quite often at the old house, but these days they’re more distant. My hubby used to talk to one that visited a huge old tree across the street when we lived in Utah. Gorgeous shot, Sylvia.
Thanks, Gunta. Nice memories you have of your hubby and the owl chatting to one another.
He looks kinda crotchety- bit like me! Great quote.
Haha…. thanks, Jo. 🙂
BE ENCOURAGED! BE BLESSED!
Thanks, Francine. 🙂
Wonderful …. I had an owl as a pet as a child, fallen out of it’s nest .. my grandpa brought it home !! Fantastic photo. It looks wise.
Thanks, Viveka. How interesting to have an owl as a pet. My mom had a vervet monkey, but of course that’s quite different. 😆
He was so wonderful and I had quite a lonely childhood – so “Klok” (Wise) became so important to me – then somebody feed him with salted bacon …. he didn’t survive.
What a hoot !! 😀
😆 Good comment, Ralph. 1st prize to you. 🙂
What do I win ? Come on tell me ?? I am soooo excited 😀
You win the chance to see what I get up to in Belize over the next week. 😀
Should be interesting 😀
I hope so. 🙂
Majestic (fancy word for awesome 😉 ) 😀
Hehehe. I like that, Steve. Makes a nice change. 😆
That’s a rhyme my Nan used to say Sylvia. That’s a beautiful bird and a fabulous photograph!
Thanks so much, Adrian. The photo was taken in West Sussex whilst visiting my MiL. The quote is very profound, don’t you agree? 🙂
It is indeed. 🙂
Amazing shot, AD! … but we blog 😀
Thanks Amy. Yes, we get it all out, here on WP. 🙂
I just love owls, he’s handsome!
Yes he is. 🙂
Classic shot. Great pic for this challenge. I like that Charles Schultz quote too.
Thanks so much, TG. A very wise quote indeed. 🙂
Now that is a Owl. I hope, I wish, by God am going to try before I die, to photograph one at night.
Sadly I have a few times picked up dead ones (substanially smaller variety than this one) from under my spruce trees. Apparently, when hunting at night they swoop in on roosting birds with such force and ferocity, they collade with branchs breaking their neck. Sad. Can’t image this one when he is on his game at night.
Thanks for visiting. I hope you get your wish. I have family with the surname ‘Howell’ and they are great owl lovers too. 🙂 That’s very sad about the kamikaze owls in your garden. 😦
That’s such a beautiful photo! And I love the little rhyme
Thanks, TA. 🙂
What an amazing photo! 🙂
Thanks, LuAnn. 🙂
Why indeed. Cool owl :-).
Good question, Gemma. 🙂 All owls are very cool, I believe.
Terrific photo Sylvia! Gotta love the amazing Mr. Owl!
He looks like he knows a lot more then he is prepared to speak about, which is often a good thing. 🙂
Thanks, Phil. He is a gorgeous specimen, isn’t he? I agree with you about the keeping quiet sometimes. 🙂
They are such graceful creatures, owls…
…and merciless. 😉
Well yes, there’s always that 😉
looks like the greatest grace has the sharpest claws 🙂
Same as with the big cats.
Two ears, one mouth – says it all doesn’t it?
Good one, optie. 🙂
The Wise One! What secrets is it hiding?
I wonder. He looks very inscrutable. 🙂
