Midday Visitor

It's such a treat when this happens: sitting on the couch, minding your own business, when a movement catches your attention and you look up to find a beautiful owl sitting on a branch looking at you. We're surrounded by woods, but this has never happened in all the 32 years we've been here. According to some cultures, he is a harbinger of bad juju (well, death) but I am thinking only good fortune with this one. His head swiveled like crazy and when I moved in the doorway to take this picture he looked directly at me.

Oh Kathy I think he was there to be the second of your fabric collage birds. The colors are perfect and you just have to make him in fabric. Gives me chills. I love when the Universe sends a message like this.

That's exactly what I was thinking! You MUST make a fabric collage. This picture is excellent. I have never seen an owl in the wild, so very very exciting!

That is just an amazing picture. we have tent trailered at my son's and heard the hoot of an owl at night but have never seen it.
