Blogue d'un québécois expatrié en Angleterre. Comme toute forme d'autobiographie est constituée d'une large part de fiction, j'ai décidé de nommer le blogue Vraie Fiction.

Barn (ghost) Owl
This is a horrid pic I took of a barn owl in the Chestnut Centre in Derbyshire, a sanctuary for animals, mainly otters and owls. My wife and I visited it with a childhood friend of hers and her husband. We loved it. I took many pictures, the ones of the owls were mainly poor one, like this one, which is actually the less bad of all the ones I took of barn owls. But I wanted to upload at least one for tonight's countdown to Halloween post. Because barn owls, as I posted before, are at the origins of many ghost stories. Because they are ghostly in appearance, because they could easily hide in a barn or an attic, then reveal themselves for a second with this spectral white face they have, then fly away or hide in the shadow. I think that however bad this picture is, it does show the ghostly nature of barn owls and this is why I wanted to upload it tonight.
