Pueo flying under gray skies

This week’s Sunday Stills challenge theme is ‘Gray.’ See more offerings here.

This photo shows a pueo, the native Hawaiian short-eared owl, gliding over a gray road beneath a gray sky. This is a stretch of Old Saddle Road, which is one of the best places to see pueos as they hunt in the pastures on either side of the road or rest on fence posts alongside the road.

      Thanks, Terri. Not sure the gray makes much difference. They have great vision and also hearing so they’re great hunters in all weathers, but like most predators they don’t always get lucky with their strikes.
