Imagine you are enjoying a nice, quiet mid-morning nap when you suddenly are besieged by a half dozen marauding crows. Definitely not a fun scenario, whether owl or human. 😉
Such was the case with this beautiful owl. He was minding his own business, trying to take a nap but had chosen a bit more visible spot than what they would normally choose. That was a mistake.
Crows spotted him and perched nearby, incessantly cawing and raising a ruckus. Here, he has just about decided he had enough and was preparing to take flight while watching his tormentors behind him. Kind of a fun pose and a good look at those talons too.
