“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

  1. 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 …

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

      • 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.

  4. 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. 😦

  5. 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. 🙂
