Met this sleepy fella (sarvipöllö, long-eared owl) yesterday! I really haven't photographed owls before and I was hoping to get a stare back to my lens but not this time ! Maybe I'm able to get a bit closer and better photo next time I see one!
I wonder how many time I've walked this path. I've been coming here since I was in elementary school and now I have kids of my own who are all taller than me. It's funny to think that my kids will probably bring their kids here too someday. In every season it's truly magical.
