Looking Back




Looking Back

A Great Horned Owl looks back.  What did he hear?  What did he see in the darkness? He has that look of wisdom that owl’s seem to cultivate.
     I liked working with that edge between light and dark—watching the way the patterns in the bird’s feathers changed from bright markings in sunlight to disappearing altogether in the shadows.
