Taken last Friday at the Barn Own Centre in Gloucester

This is a Thank You to all of you that have been in contact with me over the past months

and keeping busy during the summer month's...

Unfortunately at the moment am awaiting a pacemaker...and an operation on my eye
would you believe my luck!!! it's my photo eye..a cateract awaiting the 3rd...

So forgive me if I don't stay on computer long, but just needed to let you know
still on this 'planet'

Thank you for those messages.

Great to see this beautiful image of the Eagle Owl. It certainly is on a mission and by the concentration on its face it will get there.

And what a fabulous image to return with Lillain.
So sorry to hear your news, I was obviously aware that you hadn't been on site for awhile but I know that you have had periods of going missing from time to time and didn't like to pry.Smile On your previous image your last words were something like "Off to the woods this morning." And you haven't been seen since Wink
I hope your pace maker can keep up with your pace Lillian and that your eye will soon be back to something like normal.

My very best regards,

I too wondered where you had got to. Sorry to hear of your health issues and hope everything goes well for you. The site is a better place with you and your pictures.
My sister recently had a cataract operation and she was amazed how she can now see perfectly having worn spectacles for years. So maybe your photo eye will be even sharper than before !!
I hope everything goes very well for you Lillian and that you don't have to wait too long for the pacemaker. Often the waiting is the worst time.
A great picture here to remind us that you "are still on this planet"
All the very best

So great to see you back on EPZ and esp. with this absolutely superb photo. (Don't have an award to give yet.)

The cataract and the pacemaker should go easily and you may find you see colors much more vivid after the cataract surgery.
