We went on an adventure to visit the snowy owls in Boundary Bay today!
See the snowy owl on the log?
A little further along there was another snowy owl!
In fact, there were quite a few of them dotted throughout the field.
Looking at us!
So precious. I could hardly stand it!
It was cold and windy!
Please give them space!
Just like everyone else. Everyone needs space to be.

And we met some familiar friends. Bald eagles!
Quite a few of them today. So many that we lost count!
The focus isn't so clear.
But, the landing is incredible. So precise and beautiful and strong.
Look at the elegance of the wing tips!
Don't know who this is.
Eagle or hawk.
Very beautiful perched way up high.

Has its eye on me!
I'm in love. Again!
I have always loved owl beings!
This is the first time seeing snowy owls.
Such a blessing.
I took a little wander into owl symbolism.
<( @.@ )>
Owl is a symbol of the feminine!
And the moon and the night.
Owl was the chosen companion of Athena, the Greek goddess of wisdom.
Owl would ride on Athena's shoulder lighting her blind side and revealing unseen truths to her. This way Athena could speak the whole truth.
Snowy owl is a symbol of wisdom, trust, and a bringer of happiness.
Pictures or ornaments of a snowy owl placed in one's home is known to welcome good luck.
Snowy owl teaches to conserve one's energy until the time is right.
And to be observant of one's surroundings.
It also has the power of prophecy.
Snowy owl represents the North and the north wind.
The snowy owl can rotate it's head up to 270 degrees,
giving it an extremely wide range of vision.
Harry Potter's owl companion, Hedwig, was a snowy owl.
The ancient greeks considered owls to be a symbol of good fortune.
I certainly know that I've been blessed today!
Thank you snowy owls!
You now have my heart, too.
Thank you eagles!
