This isn't a photograph, it's a painting done by my friend Linda Jolley of Greybull. I met her many years ago when she and her sister brought me an injured grackle. They were born in Scotland and last Saturday we got together at the annual Robert Burns Birthday dinner here in Cody.
She'd told me she had a picture of an owl but didn't know what kind. I thought it was a photograph she'd taken so imagine my astonishment when she presented me with this wonderful painting of a Great Grey Owl. She's donating it to IBR as a raffle item to use for fund raising.
I still have to get it framed but then will set about figuring out how to make the raffle come to life. Thanks Linda, you're the best.
