Yesterday, hubby called me to come and have a look at his progress in the kitchen, as he’d just installed the new oven. Very exciting to see although it won’t be operational for a few weeks when the granite counter tops are in place. Even when I’m supposed to be admiring his handiwork, I always have one eye out of the window so as not to miss any action in the backyard, and suddenly I saw what looked like an owl, fly across my vision and up into a palm tree.
I decided that the best view would be from my bathroom window. There was a lot of excitement and noise from the smaller birds, who were flying back and forth to the tree where he was precariously perched on a swaying branch. Mr. Owl was not going to be intimidated though, and clung on. I couldn’t get a clear shot, as it was windy and the fronds from a smaller palm tree kept blowing across in front of where he was. I thought this was the best I was going to get.
Then all of a sudden, he turned and looked straight at me, as the palm fronds magically parted for a split second, and I pressed the shutter, hoping it would be in focus.
I’m linking this post to Charlotte’s’s ‘Feathers on Friday’ challenge.
Wishing you all a relaxing weekend. Hubby will continue working on the kitchen, and we’re looking forward to having dinner with new friends tomorrow evening.
