Owl seen at night


We were out on our weekly Wednesday night ride and I saw this owl fly down and git somethin' on the ground. It saw me seeing it, so it took to the wing and staked his claim on this perch. Perched, confident, and indignant that I'd blow his cover by taking flash photographs. That's me, the public park predator paparazzo. (Did you know that paparazzi is the plural of paparazzo, and the word stems from a reference to Signor Paparazzo, a character in La Dolce Vita, a film by Federico Fellini? Neither did I - let's hear it for www.dictionary.com)
