Mi Bujo!!!

I was prowling around the yard at the Homestead taking pictures when my phone buzzed. I damned near dropped the camera. I whipped the phone off of my hip quick enough to scare Doc Holiday only to see that it was Mother calling from inside the house.

'I'm in your backyard. Why not just open the door and holler?' I'm thinking to mself,


"The Owl."


"He's in the tree outside the kitchen window. I think he's looking at you."

Sure as Hootin'!!! I can't believe how close he let me get, within eight or ten feet. I must have taken 40 photos. He'd drift from limb to limb and tree to tree. At each stop he'd look back at me. I really hope I didn't stress him. I was just so excited to get up close and get it on film.
