Sunset Hill, Seattle, WA
The Sunset Hill neighborhood in Seattle, WA has been blessed with the presence of at least two snowy owls during the Winter of 2012/2013. I could not resist the idea that it was possible to hop on my bicycle and ride a few miles to visit these beautiful creatures of the North. These owls have captured the attention and imagination of this neighborhood and of many folks around the area.
In this shot, one of the owls is actually demonstrating that being up in a large evergreen tree is not the most comfortable as it gets its wing caught up in the branches. It may be thinking that a nice rooftop next to a vent with warm air coming out might be a better choice.
