Today I’m taking part in the Macro Monday photo challenge. You can click on the photos below for a larger view. If you like what you see, I encourage you to subscribe so you can enjoy the new photos I post a few times a week.

Technically the photos below are more zoom than macro but this is the first time I’ve photographed a great gray owl up close and I wanted to share these photos with you. The great gray owl is one of the largest owls in the world and it’s absolutely gorgeous as a whole and up close. I hope you enjoy these few shots!

Here’s what the great gray owl looks like. Quite impressive. Beautiful feather pattern too.

Look at those gorgeous eyes!

And it looks great from the side too. I wouldn’t want to get my fingers caught in that beak.

      Thanks, this is a captive owl at the zoo. The zookeeper had it out for a training session and I got to take some pictures right there and then.

I'd love to hear what you think about my photos. Please leave your comments below.
