Sophie in the Snow
Todd Christensen
Great Horned Owl
near Longmont, CO
This is a picture of Sophie the Great Horned Owl taken on a wintery day in November 2012. There was still a bit of fall color on the trees which can be seen in the background bokeh. Sophie is a rescued bird as one of her wings is damaged and she can't fly, but she serves a greater purpose as her adopters utilize her beauty to educate people about raptors and other topics. And who doesn't fall in love with those great eyes!
