Thank you Sophie, Argy and Sayten! @ Sophie: I think so too. Most owls are very reservedly when it comes to human contact.
@ Argy: Nice to be back. This is the time of year that I have more time to post my sightings. And there are a lot of them ;)

Lovely set of pics... good to hear from you again :)

Only if you disturb them, I guess: never been attacked by an owl: rather hard to spot them even... ;-)

Thank you Maria and Kunzah. @Kunzah: It sure looks that way, but unfortunately that smile can give you a nasty bite.

I think owls have a penchant for smiling.
