The Great horned owl represents the symbol of wisdom from its yellow-eyed stare so I will like to share its wisdom onto those who shall view the horned owl as a protector and share its wise presence.

Despite a cold trek through a hail storm, the view paid off when I had the opportunity to take this photo of Horseshoe Bend, a landmark near Page, Arizona. My photo is only the right side of the horseshoe shape but captures how the flow of a river carves through the rocks.

There was a big bush full of bees and although I was scared to go near them, the bees were very calm and I was able to snap a picture of this bee.
