Owls are very interesting birds; in western cultures, the owl represents wisdom (a belief dating back to ancient Greece), while in African, Central & South-American cultures they are feared as harbingers of ill-luck and death, and in the Middle-East they’re also thought of as bad omens.
Owls are nocturnal birds of prey, meaning they prefer to hunt at night. During the day, however, they generally rest and sleep, which puts them at some risk. In response – owls developed intricate camouflage patterns on their feathers, making them almost invisible for those not paying attention. So look hard and see if you can spot the owls in these pictures…
