To prove that this owl flew silently, the trainer asked a group of kids to sit down, cover up their eyes and put their hand up when the owl went over them.
Not one did.
A gorgeous owl!

You were standing in just the right place to capture this demonstration. It's a gret shot - love that the kids are waiting to hear the owl fly over them.
