My wings are bigger than yours by 

I took this almost a month ago. It was heaven on earth. My best friend Kristy was with me and so was or near and dear friend Tom from the USA. This sweet soul had spent nearly 10 years looking for great greys, his most favourite owl of all. He looked a little bit like Santa Claus.
He and I sat side by side in the field, freezing, watching these magical creatures. He joked to me ‘I hope you have a cardiac center near by because this is too amazing and I don’t think I can take much more of how incredible this is’ :) Minutes after this, a second great grey owl came to steal the first owl’s prey.
It was the most amazing thing to witness, and I am so glad I did with my best friend and Tom.
Dedicated to Tom….for your life lessons, your kind words, your compassion, and sharing with me the many stories in which you have changed many people’s lives for the better.

    Wow, such a beautiful dedication Heather, and just a brilliant capture!!! I know this is nature but I always hate to see animals fight. My stray cats do it all the time and it upsets me so!!!!!
    Warm hugs! xoxoxoxoxoxoxo

  • I wasn’t expecting this, the other one came out of nowhere….
    I went to look for the other owl after…to see if he was okay…
    he is still there every day….
    it’s so heartbreaking to see them fight…hurts the heart…but this is nature:(
    I tell them all the time to be good owls and not to fight.
    hope you are well my dear
    missing you

    What an amazing capture Heather – great to have your friend Tom share the moment with you.

  • Thanks so much Roy!!!!
    I met Tom, as well as so many other amazingly kind souls at the field where the great greys are….
    I love how you can spend just one day with a person and feel like you’ve known them your whole life….
