This gorgeous great gray owl was photographed by Tony LePrieur in Alberta, Canada. Owls may not be quite as super-smart as their corvid cousins like crows and ravens, but it's no surprise they have a reputation for wisdom – look at the face and pose. You can practically hear this beauty thinking philosophical thoughts! Would you like to see your nature photo featured as the TreeHugger photo of the day?
