Eretria, Evia - Greece

This owl was trapped in my house. We had to catch her with a blanket to set her free…

In Greek mythology, the owl, and specifically the Little Owl, was often associated with the goddess Athena. She was commonly depicted accompanied by an owl, and it has remained a common Western symbol of wisdom. This symbolism is evident in the frequent use of an owl in the logos of institutions such as universities and libraries.
The Little Owl was sacred to the goddess Athena, from whom it gets the generic name, “Athene noctua”.
