I used to love those illusion books where you would look at these abstract shapes and gradually your eyes would see a picture of a particular thing. Do you know what I mean? If you looked at it another way, something else would emerge.

I was taking pictures of the boys yesterday and moved them next to our maple tree in the backyard. I had them lean up against either side of a knothole and started snapping shots.

When I came in to edit them, I realized that the large knots and lines in the tree looked exactly like an owl.


Can you see it? See it's two large eyes and beak? There is a wing running down the left side and a little tail feather at the bottom. The little hump at the bottom right, almost to the center looks like it's talons clinging to a branch.

I thought it was neat. Of course, now that I'm trying to edit the picture of the boys all I can see is the owl! :-)


  1. It does look exactly like an owl, Terri. Isnt it amazing what we can see in Nature.

  2. I see it - very cool!

    Have a wonderful weekend!


  3. I do see it! Awesome!
    Thanks for stopping by my blog. I'm very happy Sew Crafty Friday is back, and sure hope more people will join in. I just love to see (and be inspired by) the creativity of others.

  4. Oops...I keep forgetting to sign out of my son's name--odst whatever-or-other is his Google name--that comment was from me, Mom2fur, LOL! (Nick would find the owl interesting, but I doubt he has any interest in sewing, LOL!)

  5. Great pic! Enjoyed a first visit.

    Come see me!

  6. I see it, I see it!! that's cool!

    And i did get your comment. So hopefully whatever the problem was, is fixed now.

  7. I can see the owl also! Isn't it interesting what we can see if we just take the time to look!


I love your comments and encouragement! I can't always respond back but do cherish each comment.
