Time To Say Goodbye

"Wise leader, forgive me. I am only a fledgling new to flight". ~The Whale Rider


One of several fledgling Screech Owls that nested in the owl nesting box I placed on a tree. They have left the box and I wish them well. It was a real treat to see all aspects of their growth, from the parents selecting the box to their becoming successful fledglings. I will miss interacting with them on a daily bases as I have for the past 6 weeks. But it's time to say goodbye.

    Bill, I could look at this image all day! Brilliant capture. I'll bet people can't help but smile when they view it.

    Life is well, thanks. Life always presents many 'challenges', but I awake each day with a smile and anticipation about what each new day will bring.
