Introducing leggings. You’ll never run out of inspiration.

I was out filling be bird feeders last winter and just happened to look over at a cedar tree on the corner of my property. To my surprise I found this little sleeping gaffer. He was healthy and well fed so there must have been a good supply of rodents around.

    or just bashful…?
    Divine capture of this adorable baby…(well he/she looks like a baby to me!)…All your owl captures are marvellous, but this one’s an absolute favourite..!!

  • I will admit that the Saw Whet Owl is one of my favourite birds. It looks so much like a toy bird it is hard to believe it is for real.

    Tender and cute. So refreshing to see an owl shot with its eyes closed. Love this.

  • This little one I found in my back yard, it was quite a surprise to see it.
