About Today’s Photo:
Robin & I were walking down a busy trail towards the Hopewell Rocks on the shores of the Bay of Fundy in New Brunswick when I spotted this barred owl sitting in a tree not 10′ off the trail. The Rocks are a very popular tourist attraction, and people were passing along the gravel path quite frequently. Once I started taking pictures of the owl, a bit of a crowd formed, but the owl just sat there patiently as if he (or she) were a paid performer for the tourists’ delight. Mission accomplished…
