While out for a walk this past Saturday in some woods just east of Peterborough, I spotted a magnificent Great Gray Owl. It seemed to very much at ease while watching me take pictures of it! During the 10 minutes or so that I watched the owl from quite close range, it divided its attention between watching me and scanning the area around us, looking for any signs of movement from potential meals!
