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.

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