Actually, in this case, they are what they seem. A few weeks ago this owl landed in a tree by the side of the house. He stayed there all day, and I do mean that literally.

As I took the pictures, he gave me the stank eye. I am 100% terrified of large birds, so I kept mumbling things like PLEASE DON’T KILL ME.

Once, back in Wisconsin, my morning walk took twice as long as usual because I had to wait for an eagle to fly away. He kept flying around the turnoff to the road I lived on, and…fear of birds. He could have flown down and EATEN MY LIVER, so I took proper precautions.

Eagles I’ve gotten pictures of, but never an owl. I do have pictures of hummingbirds, though. If that counts.

See you later!
