Snowy Owl that is. As of today it makes almost a week since she has graced our area and every last photographer who has and continues to be there is thrilled about it. On a humorous side note… we were walking along the top of the dam looking down at Ms. Snowy here when we notice a family walking down the hill and entirely too close to where she was perched. Not cool, says I, not cool! As the family obliviously kept walking getting closer there arose a chorus of over 20 something photographers yelling…
STOP! STOP! STOP!
The family got a clue and walked in the opposite direction and Ms. Snowy didn’t fly off, that is until someone walked too close to the photographers with his dog on a leash and she flew further away. Hoomans can be so clueless and inconsiderate sometimes! It’s not like you couldn’t see the line of photographers with all their gear pointing in one direction.
If the weather is sunny tomorrow we may go back again but this time with our tripods for the ultimate shot! But aren’t her fluffy feathery feet cute? She looks like she is wearing fuzzy house slippers… with deadly claws.
