I’ve made quite a few of these cute, wee owl ornaments over the last couple of months (especially as we approach the holidays). They are cute, they make great ornaments. I mean, what’s not to like about owls?
The other day, as I was making the rounds through my yard, I was reminded of the true nature of these raptors. Efficient hunters. Eaters of small furry things. In my case, the remains of a bunny on our sidewalk indicated the dinner of choice.
I’ll be curious to see who ends up with this small juxtaposition of, on one hand, cute and cuddly, and the other, an unhappy ending.
Nature can be cruel, indeed.
