The last few weeks have been agony health wise…I have been heart broken seeing as snowy momma moved on…and have been searching for the great grey owls for weeks now…today was my lucky day.
I would have to say, it took a lot of work, physically to get to this owl…others were actually wearing snow shoes.
Today was my first time ever seeing one of these hauntingly beautiful creatures…I couldn’t help but to weep and stand there speechless lost in it’s beauty♥

    YAY! You found a feathered friend :D maybe it’s a sign of hope (it even has a peace symbol on it’s face!); and I hope this means you’ll be on the mend!
