Night Vision

The Barn Owl is an intriguing character in the web of life on earth. Like many birds, it makes use of us in a way that could make a cat pale. “Thank you, mankind, for building the lofty beautiful straw-filled home that shelters me and my progeny from all our worthy foes.  Thank you for providing fields full of rodents and insects for a sleek nocturnal predator like me. Thank you for staying out of my way and watching with dumb, still awe, if you ever catch a sight of me. Life is good as a glorious winged specter among you.”
