Perfect Plumage by Heather King

My snowy owl goddess♥ is offically gone forever. I have been back 5 times to where I had spent 2 months watching her, in her field, and she is no longer there. There are ‘other’ female snowy owls in that small town, but none of them my snowy owl momma goddess. I will miss her ever so much. I had spent the last 2 months talking to her, photographing her and connecting with her.
2 weeks ago I witnessed a photographer that I had never seen before photographing her. His lens was the length of my arm and apparently that wasn’t long enough to get close enough to her for his satisfaction. He walked into the field she had been in for 2 months creeping closer and closer. I sat at the edge of the road with my heart cringing and crying. He went too far and was within a 5 foot radius of her, still that was not close enough. As he lunged towards her, she flew far away. We gave him hell, he didn’t care or apologize or show any remorse.
I feel a huge chunk of my heart missing as I wanted to at least wish her well and say goodbye before her journey home. I hope and pray that she is healthy and happy and safe.
This man had absolutely ZERO respect for her. I truly hope karma comes to get him.
This was the most innocent and pure being I have ever encountered. I am thankful for the time I did get to spend with her.
I have come to be THANKFUL that he scared her away, as something this profound beautiful and pure should stay that way for eternity.

    Beautiful, I knew this would be yours, she knows who you are!

  • You feel and see and love animals as I do, and it touches my heart that you actually believe she knows who I am. It’s been about 2 weeks since I seen her, I am hoping she was scared enough to never return. Thank you for your kind words♥
