Wordless Wednesday January 29, 2020

Great Horned Owl
I've been reading the book
"One Man's Owl" by Bernd Heinrich.
It's a thoughtful book and I highly recommend it.
Here is a quote from his book that really
resonates with how I feel about nature:
" I feel a strong identity with the world of living 
things. I was born into it; we all were. But we
may not feel the ties unless we gain intimacy by
seeing, feeling, smelling, touching, and studying
the natural world. Trying to live in harmony with
the dictates of nature is probably as inspirational
as living in harmony with the Koran or the Bible.
Perhaps it is also a timely undertaking."   
Have a lovely day.


  1. Kathe,

    There hasn't been too many opportunities where I've seen an owl up close. That would be an awesome thing to see and to photograph. Did you make the video or just borrow it from YT? Thanks for joining me today for WildWednesdays!

  2. Well said. I'm in touch with nature and love being surround by it like you do. We both have great respect and care as well.

    Thank you for joining the Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous Wordless Wednesday. Big hug to you and Russell and an extra treat for Miss Lucy. ♥♥♥

  3. Absolutely beautiful. I've never seen a live Owl before. I bet they're beautiful. Thanks for sharing.

  4. Really enjoyed the video. Owls are fascinating creatures. I must admit that they frighten me a little. I have no idea why.

  5. Gorgeous owl photos/video ~ love owls ~

    Happy Moments to You,
