Good morning -
Oh I've just had the most blissful start to my day.
Being outside at 4.15am visiting the Strawberry moon here in the Southern Hemisphere bang on when she is full.
The pure joy of being serenaded by two native ruru's (Moreporks) calling to each other.
Here's a link to a ruru call - my camera wouldn't pick it up for you.Here in our backyard I could hear two calling to each other.
Life really doesn't get much better than that.
What a way to start the week.
Photos of the morepork are by Chris Helliwell at NZ Exposed do pop on over to his facebook page to see more of New Zealand birds and insect photos he gets awesome shots.
The Owl speaks of the winds of change...
From the book: If Owl has flown silently into your life you have reached a significant moment in your journey. It brings to you the power of the North Wind, to wisdom born of the ancestors. Do not be afraid of all that now opens to you. Accept the gifts of those who have gone before because they offer a wondrous cloak of knowledge.
"Those who live are those who fight." ~ Victor Hugo 1802-1885
