Seen alongside the Dempster Highway: An speckled owl, perched atop a spindly northern tree.
It was keeping watch over the landscape for mice and other food.
Taking that picture must have been a real hoot!
Yes owl always remember it… ha ha
wow that guy is super cool!
Who who who’s a punmaster!
That’s one awesome zoom lens you have. Great picture.
a noble bird that Phillip took
on a winter branch away from the flock
THE eyes seem to tell us..
with winter past, we should live like that stoic bird
The owl on a naked branch High above the rocks
No huddled warmth of winter crowds
‘which can beget and foster hate.
HE keeps above the cold cold ground
His branch inviolate
When flocks are folded warm
and would animals to shelters run
That owl from Philips lens sits quietly above the frozen ground
Waiting for the morning sun
SO if in that owls track
Ones limbs cannot leap
learn to detach and avoid the lathered pack
Turn from the steaming heap.
Phillips prophetic lens
really has said a lot.
That silent click of his mechanical eye
Makes time for one to stop.
I’ll stare you down
If I have to beam
Like two suns
