Owl Be Seeing You in all the Old Familiar Places

All photos taken on March 8, 2022.

If you don’t like the weather here, just wait 5 minutes is an oft heard refrain in our part of the world. We were conflicted on whether to do our weekly forest walk today or not. The forecast promised a mix of sun and cloud and limited or no snow.

Not much to tell. After working for 3 companies over 43+ years (38 years 7 months with my last company), I finally got that promotion I had waited my entire career for……retirement. I have been exploring this new career for the past 7+ years and while it is not always exciting, the chance to do what I want for myself and my family instead of what my company wants has been very fulfilling. Early on, there was a long list of projects in my “to-do” hopper and I attacked these projects with a vengeance for the first 9 months of retirement. Eventually, my brain told me that this was not what retirement was about, so it took me another 5 months before my industriousness again took over and I attacked another line of projects, this time somewhat shorter and less complicated, as well as many new projects related to the family weddings in 2016. After going hard for 6 weeks and 3 weddings, my body was telling me to relax, then the flu bug hit and as soon as that was done with me, my sciatic acted up. No rest for the wicked. In 2020 and 2021, the Covid 19 pandemic changed the whole retirement gig. I was lucky to not be still working, for sure. I enjoy photography, gardening, working with my hands, walking, cycling, skiing, travelling, reading and creating special photo and video productions obtained in my first pastime. I may never become wealthy in any of these pursuits, but I already feel I am rich in life experiences far beyond any expectation.

  1. While I very much love your snow photos, it’s the Owl pictures that captured my attention this time, Allan! They are my favourite birds right after puffins and it’s amazing how Owls can turn their heads around almost all the way. Thanks for sharing and have a good day 🙂 Aiva xx

    1. We do not see owls often enough, but we are on the lookout for them on this walk. As to puffins, I agree. We have seen them In Newfoundland and in Iceland. Such a pretty bird. Thanks for reading Aiva. Have a great weekend. Allan

  2. Great “captures” of that majestic creature..so much better than the ones I posted in late Dec when we finally photographed one of the two who lives in our ravine. Bernie

    1. Thanks Bernie. It was a lucky sighting. Had he not flown away from in front of us, we would never have seen him or where be he went. Thanks for reading. Allan

    1. Yeah, this guy definitely had his slightly open eye pinned on me, ready for flight. He was so beautiful. Just wished his eyes would have opened more fully, but he was in his sleepy time. Thanks for reading. Allan
