Usually by mid February I start getting really sick of winter but there are days like this past Sunday when everything looks so beautiful after a snowfall. We started to get light snow Saturday night and by Sunday morning everything was covered. I had a bunch of morning pet sits and couldn't believe how nice everything looked, snow clinging to the trees, the sky was a soft blue and the sun was hitting the snow. I popped over to Rosetta McClain Gardens and was lucky to find snow without footprints, and this is what I saw:
A few days earlier Walter sent me a text message saying Frank found a great-horned owl in another park at the Bluffs. I was able to find 10 minutes in my schedule to drive over and check it out. I didn't have my DSLR, just my point and shoot, so the pictures didn't turn out too well but still, an owl is an owl and I never get tired of seeing them or photographing them:
By the next day she had already moved on so it was pretty exciting to have seen her.
