An Owl

>> Jun 18, 2011

His name is Erik. He belongs to my husband’s friend. The owl is captured when my husband visited a friend a few days ago. I thought before that all owls will sleepy during the day; but Erik doesn’t look sleepy at all.

Based on some resource sites, I’ll share a little about owl here. Well, different with most birds, owls are nocturnal with a big head and forward facing large eyes. Their eyes are fixed in their sockets, and some are able to turn around their head up to 270 degrees. This bird has amazing eyes!

With outstanding vision, sensitive hearing, and the ability to fly without a sound, they are a stealthy and successful hunter. Nocturnal creatures are symbolic of inner-knowing, psychic talent, and sixth sense. Birds are considered by many cultures to be messengers between earthly creatures and spirit.

Today, the owl is often used as a symbol for education, and used as a graduation mascot. Many cultures have connected the following characteristics to the owl:
intelligence, brilliance, wisdom, power, knowledge

intuition, messages, mysticism, mystery, unconscious, silent observation

independence, protection, bravery, transition, longevity, reincarnation

Wow, an owl can be a symbol of many things!

that owl is really cute.. incidentally, i recently researched about why owls are used to symbolize wisdom, one of the reasons i found was that owl was the pet of Athena, the Goddess of Wisdom in the Greek Mythology..
