The Joke’s on Me
Many mornings I take a short detour through Columbia Falls to study the river. It’s a beautiful spot. This morning I spotted a juvenile bald eagle chilling on the ice. As I looked around, I saw a large bird sitting atop a chimney. You can imagine my excitement when I realized it was an owl! I pulled over, grabbed my camera and started snapping pictures.
A couple of dozen shots later it occurred to me that he wasn’t moving; not even a feather. My distance vision isn’t great, so I pulled up the image in my camera viewfinder and zoomed in.
He was a fake! Who does that?
The joke was on me. 😉
