Eyes Wide Open!

    This is Alistire a spectacled owl (I stand corrected). He was such a sweetie!
    Story goes...I got to go to the zoo yesterday by myself...Yeah! No kid in tow. Mommy's day.
    I walk to the entrance and these 3 trainers were standing there and one girl had this beautiful owl on its arm. So I asked if I could take shots. She said of course. So I snapped away. I have some others I like but this one just got to me!
    They told me his name and what kind of owl he was!

      This is the first shot that I ever faved on flickr & still one of my all time favourites.

      I was just flicking back through my favs & had to comment again.

      Seen in someone's favorites. (?)
