Snowy Owl


Last Sunday afternoon my husband and I took a drive. We knew where one of these beautiful birds had been spotted a couple weeks earlier. It was a bitter, blowy day and we spotted this one up on an aerial. My husband took the photo, hand held, out the window of the truck. It did not seem to be bothered with us taking its picture. It did eventually fly away and we came away happy. For more Camera Critters go to

Owls are so special. I have never seen one in real life. I did do a slide show of pictures of them on my blog a while back. The pictures are absolutely fabulous. Come by and have a look.

A great photo of this snowy owl. I have never seen one in the wild, or even a captive one, just in shots such as yours. Very enjoyable, thank you.
Awesome shot!

I played too :)

Abstract Flowers

I found this photo in my Lightroom files yesterday and I decided to join Bonnie for her monthly Pixel Dust Photo Art PhotoArtFriday. Her theme this month was funny enough abstract art.  So I added one of her textures called Si  Belle to my abstract flowers and that is it.

First Birthday

Yesterday my husband and I attended our granddaughters first birthday party.  The house was alive with little ones having a fun time of running through the house.  Kenzi wanted to join it but they kept knocking her down as they sped past her.  She is a trouper though.  No tears as she got back up and tried to go with the flow again. The hitch came when she was to participate in the smash the cake ritual that all of my daughter-in-laws family do at the first birthday.  Her maternal grandmother had made the smash cake and Kenzi was supposed to get down into it with both hands and get covered in cake.   Kenzi was having no part in it.  She cried as her hand was pushed into the cake.   Oh well maybe next year.  It was lovely to see all the little babies born at the same time as Kenzi and how sweet they all were.  Kenzi’s cake was an Elmo cake.  He is her favourite character.  I am joining Mary for Mosaic Monday.  I can feel spring in the air even though we have quite a bit of snow left bu…
