Good morning! 🦉 The great horned owls facial disc serves a practical purpose as a type of radar dish, receiving any auditory waves and funneling them to the ears.Owls can actually pinpoint the position of their prey, and the direction and speed that it is moving by using the radar signals received from their facial disc and determining the difference between what they are hearing in each ear. They use this information to build a mental image of their surroundings. They are known to be able to detect a difference of as little as .00003 seconds between the left and right ears, and use this information to pinpoint where their prey will be by the time they have flown to meet it. #greathornedowl #weroamarizona #hikearizona #arizona_hiking #arizona_landscapes #arizonahiking #azwildlife #instagramaz #capturearizona #oh_arizona #arizonahighways #canon_photos #igsouthwest #ig_southwest #tucson #igerstucson #visittucson #photooftheday #conquerarizona   #fox10phoenix #Beon12   #explorearizona_ #see_arizona #abc15 #iamazproud #divine_deserts #exploring_arizona #natgeopix #westbysouthwest #arizonahikersguide ----- Follow @owlosophical ----- Credit: @pachucos_art ----- Awesome.

You wouldn’t know it just by looking, but it was a bright sunny morning without a cloud in the sky. The winter temps create some pretty cool effects over the water when the sun rises. I’ll definitely be back to this spot for more in the next few months. _______________________________________________________ #gilbertriparianpreserve #naturephotography #wildlifephotography #azwildlife #instagramaz #birdsofinstagram #canadiangeese #fog #wildlifeplanet #tamron #nikonnofilter #nikon
