Snowy Owl / シロフクロウ

Last summer in France, I saw an owl for the first time in my life.  I thought it was greyish White, but it was already in an almost dark atmosphere.  So, I checked the Latin name on this stamp, then read articles about it.  No, the Snowy Owls live further north than where I was…

去年の夏、念願かなってはじめてフクロウを見たのです。かなり暗くなった空を背景に、農家の屋根から木立に向かって飛び立ったフクロウはうすいグレーだったと思ったのだけど、、、学名から調べたこのシロフクロウは違うみたい。ずっと北にしか住んでいないのでした。
