What goes there by gigi50 What goes there by gigi50
Barred Owl :iconowlplz:
My most memorable experience with a wild creature in the forest.
In this photo she is looking down and listening for mice under the snow
As I searched for chickadees and squirrels there she was sitting on a branch
no more then six feet above me, she did not seem to mind me at all, I spent
almost 2 hours with her until my fingers could no longer move !
It was around -20Celsius that day.
Huntsville Ontario Canada

:iconthanks-1plz::iconthanks-2plz::iconowl-plz: This is when I live in the forest
I could say everyone had forest behind their properties and lots of wildlife
I really miss that place ! Now I live in a town with all houses very close together
but will move back in about 6 years to Ontario :clap:

Oh you mean the emoticons
I have been saving them in my favorites folder
then copy and paste for messages
Just go into my Favorites (gallery)
and pretty much all the top folders in the collections on the left
are all emoticons to use from different artist  Have fun
Just make a folder in your favorites and collect them to use 
Not sure if premium account is required :w00t:

some of the simple ones you can use I think
like I'll put a few, you have to run your cursor over it and wait
and you will see what you type out to get them to work
You have to put the dots in front and back >>> these :
:hug: :puke:  :tighthug: :love: :sprint: 
There lots like this but just run your cursor over them when you see them in messages to see if you can use them
then theres the ones that with the dots you also add :icon in front of the word and plz: at the end
and the odd one that requires icon but not plz ( gets confusing until you do it a while :giggle:)

For example - i will spread the dots so you see the writing : iconthankiesplz : it gives :iconthankiesplz: when you put the dots right in front and back
As you see when you run your cursor over it you will see thankiesplz so you will automatically add the icon in front of it for it to work
if there is no plz you either just try the word - if it doesn't work add icon between the dots and the word
All the newer ones work with just copying the thumb and paste it in your message
Always check the preview at bottom right in box of your message to see if it works before sending it in a message

Such a beautiful creature. Often I feel that owls are one of those animals that don't get enough love around the world. Them being mostly known as nocturnal, mice killing birds I think doesn't really work in their favor. I have seen a few tame ones, and they were so loving. Nice photograph, great lucky timing on that pose! :)
