  1. Fascinating! Beautiful Creature~ Posted 9 years ago
  2. He looks a bit like an Evil M, saying 'Hey, I might be small, I am grand in schemes you petty humans'. Great expression caught on chip! Posted 9 years ago
    1. Thanks Ludo. It's a master of stealth, one of my favorite animals. Check out this video:

  3. I'll watch the movie tonight, so to enjoy the audio (a bit difficult on the job right now). I agree, the owl is powerful, wise and highly in control, of all birds I think I can safely say it is also my favorite. Amazing how it can catch the prey, hidden out of sight under a heap of snow. Thanks for sharing this movie, Ferdy! Posted 9 years ago
