I like it a lot.

From +Elizabeth Therese Niwel .
 
... something with a smile ...
The look from Birds you can get sometimes. I only asked: 'would you pose, while I get a photo of you?'

Eurasian eagle-owl
The Eurasian eagle-owl is a very large bird, smaller than the golden eagle (Aquila chrysaetos) but larger than the snowy owl, despite some overlap in size with both other species. It is sometimes referred to as the world's largest owl,[4][10] although Blakiston's fish owl (B. blakistoni) is slightly heavier on average and the much lighter weight great grey owl (Strix nebulosa) is slightly longer on average.[6][11][12] It should be noted, however, that Heimo Mikkola reported the largest specimens of eagle-owl as having the same upper body mass, 4.6 kg (10 lb), as the largest Blakiston’s fish owl and attained a length of around 3 cm (1.2 in) longer.[4][13] In terms of average weight and wing size, the Blakiston’s is the slightly larger species seemingly, even averaging a bit larger in these aspects than the biggest eagle-owl races from Russia.[6][12] Also, although 9 cm (3.5 in) shorter than the largest of the latter species, the Eurasian eagle-owl can weigh well more than twice as much as the largest great grey owl.[4][14] The Eurasian eagle-owl typically has a wingspan of 131–188 cm (4 ft 4 in–6 ft 2 in),[4] with the largest specimens possibly attaining 200 cm (6 ft 7 in).[15][16][17][18] The total length of the species can vary from 56 to 75 cm (22 to 30 in).[4][6][19] Females can weigh from 1.75 to 4.6 kg (3.9 to 10.1 lb) and males can weigh from 1.22 to 3.2 kg (2.7 to 7.1 lb).[4][20] In comparison, the barn owl (Tyto alba), the world's most widely distributed owl species, weighs about 500 g (1.1 lb) and the great horned owl (Bubo virginianus), which fills the eagle-owl's ecological niche in North America, weighs around 1.4 kg (3.1 lb).

Besides the female being larger, there is little external sexual dimorphism in the Eurasian eagle-owl although the ear tufts of males reportedly tend to be more upright than those of females.[4] When an eagle-owl is seen on its own in the field, it is generally not possible to distinguish the individual’s sex. However, gender determination by size is possible via in hand measurements.[22] Reportedly, in some populations the female may be slightly darker on average than the male.[5] The plumage coloration across at least 13 accepted subspecies can be highly variable. The upper parts may be brown-black to tawny-buff to pale creamy gray, typically showing dense freckling on the forehead and crown, stripes on the nape, sides and back of the neck, and dark splotches on the pale ground colour of the back, mantle and scapulars. A narrow buff band, freckled with brown or buff, often runs up from the base of the bill, above the inner part of the eye and along the inner edge of the black-brown ear tufts. The rump and upper tail-coverts are delicately patterned with dark vermiculations and fine wavy barring, the extent of which varies with subspecies. The underwing coverts and under tail coverts are similar but tend to be more strongly barred in brownish-black.
The primaries and secondaries are brown with broad dark brown bars and dark brown tips, and grey or buff irregular lines. A complete moult takes place each year between July and December.[23] The facial disc is tawny-buff, speckled with black-brown, so densely on the outer edge of the disc as to form a "frame" around the face. The chin and throat are white with a brownish central streak. The feathers of the upper breast generally have brownish-black centres and reddish-brown edges except for the central ones which have white edges. The chin and throat may appear white continuing down the center of the upper breast. The lower breast and belly feathers are creamy-brown to tawny buff to off-white with a variable amount of fine dark wavy barring, on a tawny-buff ground colour. The legs and feet (which are feathered almost to the talons) are likewise marked on a buff ground colour but more faintly. The tail is tawny-buff, mottled dark grey-brown with about six black-brown bars. The bill and feet are black. The iris is most often orange but is fairly variable. In some European birds, the iris is a bright reddish, blood-orange colour but then in subspecies found in arid, desert-like habitats, the iris can range into an orangish-yellow colour (most closely related species generally have yellowish-coloured irises, excluding their Indian cousins

World Oceans Day

I love also celebrate this Day with G+.
This photo from +Elizabeth Therese Niwel is good to think thoughts, have reflections, and look for next day to come.

Maybe you will enjoy listen to Chopin's Raindrops:

Today, June 8. is World Oceans Day ~~~
I would love to celebrate with all of you on G+
Have a happy one
... and I "frame" my photo in a special matte.
I kinda like it. Do you?

World Oceans Day has been unofficially celebrated every 8 June since its original proposal in 1992 by Canada at the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. It was officially recognized by the United Nations in late 2008. It has been coordinated since 2003 by The Ocean Project, with greater participation each year.

"Night Strike" is purely amazing.

One of many wonderful images with lightning taken by +Bo Insogna .

Maybe, because I listen to Frédéric Chopin: Ballade N1 In G Minor, Op23 - played by Annie Zhou, Piano
- the image is more powerful for me. Maybe.
If you wish, you can listen to it too.

Blue Moon is coming tonight.
I will add "Blue Moon" with Ella Fitzgerald
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dqwSde_eEv4


From +Elizabeth Therese Niwel .
 
Tomorrow afternoon/ night is Blue Moon, - if you get a clear Sky - look up.
Next monthly Blue Moon on January 31, 2018.
With clear Sky would be also possible to see Mars close to the Moon.

I have been lucky to get 'near - full Moon' tonight.
