The Great Grey Owl is Fearless when Hunting.

Great grey owls perch on relatively low tree branches, making them a photographer’s dream.
This particular owl and another juvenile in the area were quite dedicated hunters and would search for mice and voles in the dry grass and meadows, swooping long and low before gliding back up to a suitable perch.
It was seemingly unfazed by human presence and would stare right into the camera often both during flight and while scanning for prey from the pine branches.
