like the eye
of a hurricane

Wonderful shot. Thank you.
In 1983, I experienced the eye of Hurricane Alicia, and I’m here to say the metaphor is perfectly apt. It’s interesting how the pattern of feathers around the eye resembles a storm’s form.
Fascinating metaphor! Love seeing owls.
entrancing 🙂 (dangerously!)
makes me want to be that owl, that eye
I love it all…how did you get the photo??? I’m so jealous-in-a-good-way! I love owls! (Sorry for all the exclamations, but they are my feelings). Smile.
I love owls too. As I was driving down the driveway I noticed what looked like a clump of leaves on the telephone line. It was this guy with his head tucked in low – scanning the meadow for breakfast!!
thanks for stopping by and letting me know about your blog. It’s absolutely surreal!
