This handy lens cloth features a striking detail of a Snowy Owl from Audubon's beautiful hand coloured plates from Birds of America.
A large, powerful owl of the high Arctic tundra, colored for camouflage during northern winters. In summer it may be nomadic, concentrating and nesting where there are high populations of the small rodents called lemmings. At other times it takes a wide variety of prey, including birds as big as geese.
Dimensions: 14cm x 17.5cm
The exhibition Audubon's Birds of America runs from 12 Feb - 8 May 2022 at the National Museum of Scotland.
