Saw-whet owl - Salt Spring Island
During my time where I lived in Victoria BC, I visited the very beautiful and inspiring Salt Spring Island, also home to Master Wildlife artist Robert Bateman. Upon one of these visit's I found this very odd shaped branch which was beautifully illuminated. Earlier there had been a light rain, as what usually happens on the west coast. And although at that point and time I had not seen a saw whet, when I saw that branch and lighting I thought that one just 'belonged' there.
