This is the face of a dead Great Horned Owl, dead even though its open eyes suggest life. It was road-kill in North Dakota last week. I often stop for dead birds seen along roads. It’s a chance for close looks not often available in other ways. I also photographed its feet and talons. I find these hunting tools to be impressive.
