Paula’s Special this week is’ Eyes and Eye Contact’. I decided to go for the literal meaning, and post a couple of owl photos taken on different occasions through my bathroom window. I have no idea whether owls actually have thoughts, but if they do, I’d love to know what was behind this stare and the fact that his beak moved as though he were saying something to me.
Owls are often said to be wise, but maybe it’s just their unflinching stare that makes them look wise. They are mainly nocturnal birds, and I read that in bright light their sight isn’t that good, which is why they appear to be staring. They’re just trying to get you in focus.
Whatever the reason, that eye contact was quite unnerving, but I was happy to get the photos.
Hope your weekend will turn out to be a good one.
