Introducing leggings. You’ll never run out of inspiration.

Great Horned Owl (Bubo virginianus)

Captured with Nikon D90 and Sigma 150-500 mm near Simcoe, Ontario, Canada

Young Great Horned Owls normally do not move far from the area in which they were born: over 90 percent of nestlings that have been banded and later recovered moved less than 80 km.

This owl is one of Canada’s commonest large birds of prey. The most notable physical attributes are its large size and prominent ear tufts or “horns.”

Featured in The Beauty of Nature, Nature’s Wonders Group, and Ontario in May 2010

I’m a self-taught wildlife and nature photographer based in Toronto, Canada. An affinity for the wonders of the natural world, along with a healthy respect for our environment, has stayed with me since I was young and I have endeavored to express that passion through my work.
