That is so special Ellen to be able to go picture taking with some friends and then to get to see some amazing birds like this owl here. Could not ask for a better pose. They are so gorgeous and one of my most favorite birds. They amaze me with their skills. Gorgeous look. Annie and I hope your day is a wonderful one. #11343757
