A dehydrated juvenile Boobook looks deep into my soul as I prepare to give him his AM treatments. No pic of the day, because I just haven't had time to surf the blogosphere. I've been out at a quiz night which, I am stunned to report, our table (WAR) has won 2 weeks in a row. :) Go vote for your favourite Aussie blogs.

    Wow, this one is great! I like the reflexion of the lamp in his/her eyes.

    I won't pretend to know what a Boobook is, obviously it's a bird, but not something I'm familiar with here in Canada. Stunning picture.

    Sorry Chuck, only just noticed I never mentioned that it's a type of owl. They are very beautiful little owls.

    WOW. How cute he is! Lovely eyes! Is it not too difficult to fed him? Do you raise mouses in your house? :-) Nice picture!!!

    I took this image (as I take many others) at Kanyana Wildlife Hospital. I'm a volunteer there.

    An amazing image. As soon as it popped up I said "aaaahhhh". The look in the owls eyes just pulls at your heart strings. Beautiful colors and clarity.

    This is one incredible image. The towel wrap is so domestic but almost an un-noticed second thought.

    Yeah, even a juvenile like this is capable of doing some serious damage if not handled carefully, so we always use thick towels for those with dangerous beaks/talons.

    Una foto spettacolosa.

    Wow - love the catchlights in those big eyes.
  • ChickyBabe // 2006-01-21 15:11:07

    Stunning! I like the reflection in the eyes!

    Loverly coloured blue on his beak and you really do melt into those eyes.
