When it comes to our animal pals, owls have always been thought of as a symbol of wisdom. 🙂
Here are a couple of reasons why owls are considered wise, from Yahoo answers:
-Back in the old days when people paid attention to such things, they noticed that owls stay quiet, keep their eyes open and strike quickly.
-Owls were sacred to Minerva, the Greek goddess of wisdom (among other things) so that her reputation rubbed off on them.
This gorgeous grey owl photo is one that I have on a note card I purchased a while back, from:

I am just enchanted by this photograph. I hope you enjoy it too.
We can learn a lot from birds and other animals, can’t we?
Here’s to a week filled with wisdom and wonder! 🙂
