Owl Goes Goose-Stepping

owl.jpg

If foxes are sly and lions are wise then owls are definitely smug. Like that kid at school who'd report you to the teacher as if they were some sort of unpaid assistant, an owl revels in its own self-importance.

Flaunting their non-existent control over others whenever they damn feel like it, owls are surely one of the most hated figures within the animal kingdom.

This guy shows us exactly why.

In the picture we can see him on his daily rounds, patrolling the forest as a self-appointed sheriff. Let's just hope some wild, crack-addicted squirrel doesn't get in his way.
