Nice close up. Where was this taken? It almost looks like Parrot Jungle?

Yes Owl's are freeeeeeky! Once when I was on a fishing trip on the east coast of australia, I was sitting down on a hill, about one hundred metres from the light swelling oceans waters. I was relaxed and calm, just crusin with the morning sunrise, having sausages and eggs for breakfast, as I couldn't catch any bloody fish the day before. Anyway, there I was, with no one else around, alone and happy in my solitude, when suddenly, out of no where, a Big Fat brown eyed, full on, cheeky arse Owl, flew down in front of me and parked himself on a stump, with his Hooked beak about four feet away from my eyeballs. Then he started continuesly staring at me, making his eyes wider, and intimidating me even more with his long glareing stare, he then totaly locked into my fear, as He sat there frozen still, like an owl that had been stuffed and mounted., eyes WIDE open, just staring at me, which meant, On an Owl's ESP terms " HAND it over NOW Yellow, or I'll peck your bloody eyes out! " He meant big business, and he wasn;t going anywhere untill I surrended my brathworst sausage to him, so in fear of being attacked, and mawled by his massive beak, I threw it at him, he just raised his head and caught that sausage as quick as a flash, with his beak, with one swift swing of his head, then he casually spread his massive wings and flew off up into a near by tea tree , then he started to savour and devour it, constantly turning his head back at me, keeping a sharp eye on every move I made, while I helplessly watched my sausage slowely dissappear down his big greedy tummy.. I really wanted that snag bad. True story. Cheers , Robert Woolrich.

This Bird, looks like its got plenty of attidude, I think it's really trying to get in on the act here, a little head strong, and at the same time is expecting somebody to cough up a feed. V.
