I took these pictures when I joined a photographic workshop some time ago. We were in the Shenandoah Mountains. This gorgeous owl was rescued after being injured and was unable to return to the wild, so was being used as part of an educational program. I thought he was magnificent.
A wise old owl sat on an oak;
The more he saw the less he spoke;
The less he spoke the more he heard;
Why aren't we like that wise old bird?
