Lest you be of the impression that England is teeming with woodland creatures just aching for a photo op, or that I am even remotely decent with a camera, let me assure you that this was taken at Paradise Park, a wildlife sanctuary in Cornwall. I literally looked up, and there it was. Espen fell deeply in love with owls that day, and brought a little toy one home with him, thanks to some pocket money from his great-granny. He will still happily inform you that an owl says "hoo-hoo" if you ask him. I love how much he loves animals, and hope that he will keep that love with him as he grows older.
