Here I am with an owl.
I could change the background of the photo to a beautiful forest or something, but in truth, the photo was taken at my local garden centre.
Nonetheless, it was very special to be able to share a moment with this little one. Such stunning eyes, breathtaking patterns on her feathers, fabulous claws and an amazing face!
No wonder owls feature so predominantly in our mythology and magical stories.
Without wishing to sound cheesy, I had an overwhelming moment of feeling so privileged to share this world with other species.
Long may it continue.
