Some Native American tribes believe the owl are messengers of death.
Apache for example believed that dreaming of an owl signified an approaching death.
Others, like Newuks, believed that after death, the brave and virtuous became Great Horned Owls. The wicked, however, were doomed to become Barn Owls.

Shot from workshop organized by Raymond Barlow at the Mountsberg Raptor Center. Located about 1 hrs west of Toronto, the Center is a place where they rehabilitate, breed, train injured raptors.

Raymond's workshops are definitely a great experience for anyone, pro and non, that would like to spend few hrs learning about wildlife photography .. and why not, getting to know better this amazing creatures. Raymond's work can be see here.
