Awe, thanks to both of you!
That little owl was so cute and such a surprise to find sleeping in the backyard, one snowy evening, deep into the brutal winter that was last year.
Not so sure I want to remember all that much about about last winter just yet, but maybe in a few years I might just print it and frame it! I think it's pretty good art, if I do say so myself *Blush*

zuzu just said what I was about to say. That face is just precious. And I hadn't realized it was a baby owl. So sweet.

This is an outstanding photo! And I agree with all the comments above. It must have been a very cold time since its feathers are fluffed for warmth! Thanks for sharing this beautiful image. Thumbs up
