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.
