Weekly Photo Challenge: On Top

This week’s photo challenge is: On Top. We’re free to interpret this in any way we choose. So for me, nothing says “top” like “Top Predator.” Being lord of the skies, surveying the land for whatever you desire to take. How about being a Great Horned Owl or a Swainson’s Hawk…

…or then again, if you’re a Pelican, and a Seagull is standing on your head, that’s “on top” too. 😉

About EagleAye

I like looking at the serious subjects in the news and seeking the lighter side of the issue. I love satire and spoofs. I see the ridiculous side of things all the time, and my goal is to share that light-hearted view.

    All great shots; that silly seagull is too much! Maybe it didn’t want to get its feet wet.

      Hehe. I couldn’t believe it when I saw it. I have many pics of this encounter. The pelican was regularly catching fish, and the seagull was trying to steal them from him. It was pretty amazing.

    LOL in the first photo of the Great Horned Owl, he is clearly saying, “Don’t even think about it!” 🙂

    Oh, these are all such lovely shots! I’ve yet to see an owl in real life — I’d love that.

      Thank you June! I’ve only seen one myself in the past couple years. We had brought friends with us who had never seen one. They were delighted to say the least. Thanks much for stopping in!

        That must have been awesome! I guess they’re pretty silent … don’t make much noise 🙂

        Incredibly so. And look at it’s feathers. It’s camouflage is perfect. The first time we went there, we were led by birders with sharp eyes and decades of experience. They couldn’t find it! The owl looked exactly like part of the tree. Until it flew, no one could see it. When we got this photo, we spotted it much more easily this time.
