When I looked at this Burrowing Owl image on my monitor I had to chuckle because in a strange way it reminded me of myself when I first dove off of a 10 meter platform and how my toes were the last to let go. There is that moment when you just have to take the leap.
In a split second I caught the moment in time just before the Burrowing Owl juvenile spread its wings and its talons let go of the barbed wire as it dove towards the burrow below. It might be the look of concentration of this owl that made me chuckle by realizing that I probably had that same look just before leaving that platform 33 feet above the water.
Life is good.
