My very first introduction to the Snowy Owl was from finding the breathtaking beautiful work of Ted Busby and Daniel Parent here on Redbubble. Seeing the majestic beauty they captured left me awestrucken and at a loss for words. I quickly had to research everything I could on this amazing creature.
Saturday January 21st 2012 makes my first time seeing these beautiful owls in their natural habitat. It was by far the most beautiful moment I have ever experienced in my life. To be lucky enough to see these beautiful rare arctic birds left me weeping in happiness as my heart was beating a million miles an hour. I don’t think it would be quite the same to see them in a zoo or park type setting. I am ever so thankful to my friend Steve for taking me to find my new addiction.
