Owl 🦉 Missile

An owl 🦉 missile blasts off from its launch pad.


This owl and her (his) mate have their home in a hole on this palm-tree stump. I and my husband often spot them lingering on the tree during the afternoon, with wide-open eyes.

And we wonder why on earth they’re not asleep like good nocturnal folk. Nesting is the most likely explanation.
