Who who HOOO are you?

A little nature from French's yard......hubby ran in this morning and said QUICK get your camera and come here. First, I am still in my jammies, second I don't go beyond the fence in the backyard....it's a jungle out there (ok not really but I am just not the outdoorsy type) it's all woods and a small creek...but alas I run off behind hubby with camera in hand to see a most spectacular view that even took my breath away.....we've been hearing this big critter for days now but finally got a bird's eye view of him (no pun intended)!! We also have a nest sitting on our front porch, I tried to snap a pic but it came out kind of blurry but you can just see a hint of a beak wide open waiting on breakfast....the other pics are of some flowers in the yard...hope everyone has a safe Memorial day weekend;)






Hugs and much love French;) xoxox

So cool Lisa, Don'tcha just love to hear them -especially @ night.....We used to have one in our back yard in central Minnesota. I actually had a Boreal owl crash into the porch window one day. He laid there stunned for a little while -but he got back up and flew off. Your flowers are so pretty. ~ Happy Spring! ~ Robyn

How cool to get those shots of the owl! You actually got a front view as well!

Now what do you mean a jungle, the trees and the creek you spoke of sounds enchanting! Now get out there and get me some shots of the nature that surrounds you! lol!! Where is your sense of adventure??!!

You have beautiful flowers in your yard, would love to see more!

Oh how lucky of you to capture that. Sounds like your backyard is just like ours, jungle over the fence and a creek and we hear this hooting all the time too especially in the late afternoon but we never see the owl. Your picture is amazing! Beautiful flowers too...Christine
