Who's That Archie?

By Lillian  
Archie the White Faced Owl looking worried at his reflection
Not at all happy about the intrusion, and finally got into that water
just to check out the reflection

again taken at Wild Arena with Jenni, Bob and Carol
Hand held

My thanks to Dave, Netta, Bob, Keith, Steve and Carol
for your User Awards yesterday, appreciated very much

Enjoy your day, I am off to Paradise Park to see some more animalsGrin

I love the way owls always look pissed off (sorry LillianBlush), that's how they come across. perhaps they need a PR guru la Max Clifford?

Hey Lillian looks like you had a very fruitful trip with wild arena, great set so far, did you really spend a week? You must have
enough goodies to keep you busy for ages.
Great shot of this fella, those eyes so striking.
