  2. What kind of owl is this? Am wondering because I saw one last week; it was a magical moment. The photo is beautiful!

    • I know the feeling. This is a barred owl which makes the familiar “Who-cooks-for-you” call. I was very lucky to get a glimpse of her with sufficient light for this picture.

  22. Hey there…
    Just dropping you a note to say “I hope my Blog didn’t over load your inbox recently’.”
    I think I had something set wrong and as I was creating a post it may have sent out an email to every “follower” of my blog as I made changes. If this happened to you, I am so sorry.
    And in case I haven’t said so yet…Thanks for stopping by my site.
