Ural Owl in The Forest

Ural owl, native to Europe and Northern Asia, 
He's looking cautiously around the corner from his forest lookout. This is a beautiful owl and a beautiful photograph. It's somehow comforting to look at this peaceful image as I watch the news this morning about the carnage in Paris.

I love all the photos of your owls, but this one touches my soul; so beautiful!

Thank you for the lovely photograph. In the wake of what has just happened in Paris, and really, every day these days, it is comforting to go to Content in a Cottage and see images of beauty. Beautiful houses, gardens, sunsets, beloved old doggies. Your blog is usually the last thing I see before I turn off the light. That is intentional, since it always puts me in a better state of mind, helps erase the bad stuff. I fall asleep to images of perfect country kitchens, boxwood gardens, and sometimes a white muzzled Webster.

Thank you for creating such a lovely, calming space.
