Hawthorn's HeartšŸ’“thon 11 February 2017

When I take part in Hawthorn's Photo Scavenger Hunt she encourages us to 'think outside the box'.

Today's photo comes under that category.  I have included it because of Boris's heart-shaped face.

Who is Boris?  He (assume it is a he) is a tawny owl who lives in a tree behind our previous house.  We have yet to finish emptying the house and selling it.  Meanwhile I can go and see Boris; he is there most days when there are leaves on his ash tree.  At the moment it is winter here and no leaves so no Boris.  He is very tolerant of me taking photos and I've never known him to fly away.  One day after I'd take many photos he did turn round so all I could see was his back!  I left him in peace.

I hope you like him.

  1. I love Boris and am always thrilled when he pops up on your other blog. We don't even hear owls here so I sort of feel he is 'my' owl too!! He certainly has a handsome heart shaped face. He has to be a male, his name is Boris!!

    1. I've not heard the call so the name Boris felt right for 'him' and so it will remain. As soon as the ash leaves are back I will go and see if he is there. Heard an owl hear last night and the night before but have yet to see it!

  3. Boris is better than any neighbour watch. I hope that the new owners, when you sell the house, will look after him. Jx

    1. He is so special and I know I am very lucky to be able to see him. Can't wait for the leaves to return so I can go and see if he has come back too.

  4. Oh, I'm in love. Boris is certainly gorgeous & he does have a heart shaped face, doesn't he? It's great to still be able to see him. Take care.
