A Little Snow

We got a little snow here today in Southern New England. It was just a few inches but enough to pretty things up around here:

I hope you enjoyed your President's Day Holiday today.

Valentines Day Sunrise

I hope you had a nice Valentine's Day yesterday. If you are a regular follower here on the blog, you may remember that my Mom passed away on Valentine's Day. This year is the five year anniversary. I can't believe that it's been five years, and I miss her so very much.

Each year to celebrate my Mom's life and love, my sister Kathleen and I go out to photograph the sunrise.

As always, we could feel our Mother's love and presence on this beautiful, although chilly morning.

Snowy Owl, Duxbury MA

Yesterday I had the opportunity to go to Duxbury Beach in search of Snowy Owls. From what I have heard, there are two Snowys there this Winter. The owls are relocated each year from Logan Airport where they are drawn to the flat open space, which reminds them of the tundra where they reside throughout the rest of the year.

It wasn't long before we saw this female sitting on a post:

After a while she flew off to to catch something to eat. She was pretty far away so not sure what she caught. You can see her spitting snow out of her mouth in this next photo.

From here she decided to take off and land along one of the dunes. This was the closest she came:

A couple of trucks came along and once again she took off in flight:

She decided she was tired....

And she snoozed off and on sitting on the dune.

We left her here to rest. It's always an amazing experience to witness these beautiful birds in the wild. As always, click the photos for a larger view of this beautiful girl.
