The Wise Owl | Wildlife Illustration

The wisdom of the owl is a legend dating back to the Greco-Roman era and the reference seems to be made in popular culture quite often. Not only are these beautiful creatures known to be wise, but are often misunderstood as well, because they are nocturnal and live in the dark, they have been associated with witchcraft and black magic. I mean who has ever watched a movie and someone is lost in the ominous woods with the tell tale owl hooting and the character is either afraid or foreshadowing shows something bad about to happen. Owls have also been associated with bad luck and bad omens. I don’t believe any of the bad things said about owls because I enjoy photographing, drawing and watching them! The association reminds us that sometimes things are not what they seem and if you are kind to the owl she will share her wisdom and beauty with you as everyone thrives together.

To err is human, but to find a solution is wise like the owl.
