Great Grey Owl - (Strix nebulosa) - Grand Teton National Park - Wyoming

From its forest perch, a stealthy hunter is keeping a close watch on the floor below. Anything that moves is likely to be detected. The great grey owl relies on its exceptional hearing to locate prey. Their large unmistakeable facial disc focuses sound to the owls ears, allowing it to precisely zero in on its prey. Once it has located a target,  the owl's silent flight aids in the pursuit. I observed this great grey for quite some time. I watched in amazement as it swooped from tree to tree in absolute silence. In terms of length these are the largest owls in the world, but it is their keen senses and silent flight that makes the grey ghost such a succesful hunter. Owls have piqued the interest of the engineering community, who study their feathers and wings to better understand how they can move through the air so quietly, hoping to apply natures amazing technology to man made things like airplanes and submarines.

Metal Print - Ready to Hang

Metal Print - Ready to Hang

With metal prints the brilliant surface offers a richness of color that makes viewers take notice.  But they also solve the "problem" of framing. Traditional mounting, matting, and framing can be a time consuming and expensive process. Not so with Metal Prints, the metal surface is naturally smooth and rigid, and with a hanger attached to the back, they are ready to hang right out of the box. This is a great choice for a ready to hang contemporary piece of wall art at a more econonimal price.

Canvas Gallery Wrap - Ready to Hang

Canvas Gallery Wrap - Ready to Hang

Canvas Gallery Wraps offer a superb way to display your photographs. What makes canvas wraps so popular is that they eliminate the need (and cost) of framing. Your Canvas Wrap is ready to hang on your wall, right out of the box. Once you see your Canvas Wrap, you'll understand why these are one of the most popular trends in decor and display. Canvas wraps are also a great option if you have a room that received a lot of glare. The canvas won't reflect the light like a traditional glass or acrylic frame will.
