My daughter, who was about 11 years old at the time, came running into the house yelling that there was an owl in the creek. I'm like "yeah, right". She insisted, and I grabbed my camera, just in case and he just sat and watched me while I took his picture, and I took many! That was when I fell in love with owls. I can still hear them outside my bedroom at night and I love the sound!
On Facebook, I belong to Cincinnati Birders. People began posting sightings of a Snowy Owl, in Cincinnati of all places!!! I kept an eye out and one Sunday morning I had my gear all ready and when someone posted a sighting, I was ready to go! He wasn't hard to find, there were about 40-50 photographers on the side of the road, the owl paparazzi and I joined in!
