Calendar 2012: Colours: January

The photo

Snowy owl, Japan

Where and When :
at Kyoto Municipal Zoo, early April, 2011

The reason why I think it represents the colour white :
At first sight, I just thought this bird is so cute but it's not possible to take it home as a pet, so I took some pics. For me "White" is associated with "so pure", "entirely new" or any positive aspects...I thought my pic is a perfect match to your calendar of 2012 since I'm quite sure this benign smile of snowy owl can make everybody happy, is a good sign for a new start.

I'm happy if you like it !
