He's kind of hard to see in this small version. Think how I went about spotting this owl from a moving car. Inconsistent shape stood out. The stance said raptor to me immediately. Only after we were a good twenty yards past did my head say "owl". This is my first time seeing a great grey own during daylight hours. He's a really special bird and quite large, almost 2' tall. The photo was taken in Banff, Alberta.
