The most common owl in North and South America, the great horned owl has adapted to a wide variety of habitats and climates.
In this image, I have given Bubo (his name – which comes from the Genus in his scientific name) a lovely perch… from the background courtesy of Alba_stock (DA). and then I set the time and the mood with textures by darkwood67, frenchkiss, and Anna Lenabem.
