Grand-duc d'Amérique | Great horned owl | Bubo virginianus

Grand merci Stéphane!!!
Après avoir arpenté les sentiers du Bois de Papineau, sans succès, je suis aller à la rencontre de mon grand ami Stéphane Tremblay où nous avons fait les sentiers du Boisé Sainte-Dorothée à la recherche de strigidés quelconque, sans succès là aussi. Devant quitter avant la fin de l'après-midi je l'ai laissé poursuivre sa quête en bonne compagnie, nous venions de croiser Yves Roy et Ilana Block. Rendu à ma voiture, Stéphane m'a avisé d'une grande découverte. Sa persévérance avait porté fruit. Il avait repéré un Grand-duc d'Amérique. J'y suis retourné, tout juste au moment où la si belle lumière dorée baignait le boisée... Merci Stéphane!

For Macro Monday, the theme is "Favorite Books" (Later changed to "My Favourite Novel" apparently). My first thought was the Oz books, which practically formed my childhood. BUT, since most people only know the movie, and are not aware of the 38 wonderful books, for children, which were written at the turn of the century (about 1900-1920), I decided to go with my second favorite books.

So I went with Jane Austen, whose sharp wit and turn of phrase, subtle social commentary (although I suspect it wasn't considered so subtle at the time it was written), gentle humor, and a really good way with romantic misadventures, won my heart many years ago.

How to show Jane Austen books.... I went with Pride and Prejudice....??? So, borrowing a LOT from the 1995 miniseries of the book, I decided to use dress materials, to indicate the way all upper class females were dressed, how much time was spent making and maintaining those dresses, and the delicacy of the materials (which limited the women of the time to only certain approved activities, of course).

So, lace and cloth.

Fahrenheit 451 is a dystopian novel by American writer Ray Bradbury, published in 1953. It is regarded as one of his best works. The novel presents a future American society where books are outlawed and "firemen" burn any that are found. The book's tagline explains the title: "Fahrenheit 451 – the temperature at which book paper catches fire, and burns..."
