This Great Grey Owl has for the past month been almost a daily visitor at the Reifel Bird Sanctuary located just outside of Vancouver, B.C. He becomes active, hunting for food, in the very late afternoon as the sun comes down. The face is not as completely sharp as I would have liked, but I like the burred motion of his wings giving the illusion of motion.
Andre, a Siamese mix, is one of my five cats. Just the other day, I found him sleeping under this quilt my wife made. That in itself is not odd. Generally, he is completely under the quilt. On this particular day, I found him sleeping like this. I quickly grabbed my camera and snapped off a few photos.
