Today I saw four snowy owls, three within a mile of each other, a very rare occurrence. The snowy owls always make me think of mystical visions from heaven as they soar silently across the sky. This beauty, from up high on his perch, seemed to enjoy staring me down.. This one I call Miss Uppity.. she has a bit of an attitude but she`s a sweet poser and so beautiful!

I wish I had words to express my profound sorrow in the loss of so many innocent souls this past Friday.. but there really are no words that seem to say what I feel.. so I simply dedicate this image to their memory. May they rest in peace.

A special Thank You to Andrea Peterson for the nomination, it is much appreciated, Andrea!!

    Oh this is such a beautiful vision in white...and the lighting is wonderful...I know what you mean about the loss of so many innocent souls and it is hard to even express ...I think many of us are still in a state of shock that this could happen and when does violence ever end? My thoughts and prayers are with the families who have lost their loved ones this Christmas season.
