Such a cool photo, Maria. You are so good at capturing personality. You must fly ~in your sleep? #7906940

I often think about how wonderful it will be if I could fly...
This owl was injured in the wild and the Wild Bird Rehabilitation Center in Key Largo FL. Created this center to rehabilitate and nursed these injured birds back to health.
This owl hopefully will regain his power and health to come out of his cage and fly once again in the wild..

Creative Power could be any number of things,I choose this image to thank The Wild Bird Center for the wonderful work they do with the injured birds and the effort they put into bringing them back to healthy birds.
If I could fly I would need powerful wings to be able to do so,but instead I have to arms and 2 hands to hold my camera and take images so I can show the beauty surrounding us..
Have a great Weekend everyone..
