It was a quiet evening leaving my sister’s house last Friday night. As I came to the end of her street I noticed something in the road. Yup, I was already familiar with this sighting and knew right away that it was an owl standing in the middle of the road. This happened to me a few years ago! I couldn’t believe it was happening again! He wasn’t afraid of me and I just sat in my car in silence and complete awe. Something moved that he was eyeing so he eventually took off but not too far so I followed him and parked my car. Exiting quietly, I approached the tree he decided to land in and I got a glimpse of part of his beautiful face. There were a few special moments that he looked down right at me and we made a sweet connection. I was not taking photographs at that point as you can imagine.

I have this affinity with animals. Everyone in my office knows it and I receive numerous texts and photos from friends and family as they come across or in contact with animals. Last Friday evening on the eve of the blue moon, I was driving home and came upon a barred owl standing in the middle of the road. This is the second time this has happened to me in my lifetime and I love it! We looked at each other for a while without any other traffic interrupting our close encounter. He decided to fly off and up into a tree not far from me so I followed him as he settled in on a sturdy branch on the edge of the almost full moon. What a night!
