“Some people are like Slinkies - not really good for anything,
but you still can't help but smile when you see one tumble down the stairs.”
I keep telling you - the owls are not what they seem.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Twin_Peaks
The owl is sacred to the Greek goddess of learning, Athena and is even depicted on some Greco-Roman currency as a symbol of status, intelligence and of course, wealth.In ancient Egyptian, Celtic, and Hindu cultures the symbolic meaning of owl revolved around guardianship of the underworlds, and a protection of the dead. In this light the owl was ruler of the night and seer of souls. A misunderstanding of this necessary relationship gave the owl some negative associations with death. It should be clear that the owl was honored as the keeper of spirits who had passed from one plane to another. Often myth indicates the owl accompanying a spirit to the underworld - winging it's newly freed soul from the physical world into the realm of spirit
Sorry folks, tawny frogmouths ain't owls. They don't have talons and they catch their prey in their beaks.Australia has about 10 native owls. My favourites, (just because of their names): Greater Sooty Owl, Lesser Sooty Owl and Powerful Owl.
well i say if it looks like an owl.... but nonetheless i will look up the tawny frogmouth and find out what kind of flying creature it is then...
Beautiful photo's Kae, nice work.
