Thanks Vendla. The funny thing was that when I looked at the images that I made, I also noticed another animal on the image.... a grasshopper! I did not see it at all when I was budy with the owl and it made me smile. Incredible that the grasshopper stayed there while the owl was eating the mouse! #7322557
