The day started off with me and my trail running group tackling very snowy conditions in the hills above Okanagan Lake, a great workout, beautiful as always and in good company. Then my husband and I decided to try our luck searching out owls lower down by the lake. I thought we were once again skunked when glancing to my left I found myself staring at a long eared owl equally surprised and staring right back. He was only a few feet away at eye level so I got a fabulous photo and came home to paint him for todays daily painting. We also came across a northern pygmy owl so close I could reach out and touch him but he was sleeping and kept his head tucked away so not a great photo. An afternoon painting and now a movie. Life is good sometimes.
