The hunting owl

Two big eyes staring straight at me
Taking everything, in like it knows
The tilt of its head as it listens
Then with silent goes

Powerful legs with sharp talons
Long feathered wings spread out wide
Now in pursuit of its prey, as it
Swoops over the countryside

Without hesitation it strikes
Its prey never knew it was there
As it dives down for the kill
The owl and its prey, the hare!

Watched an owl while on holiday and was amazed at the way it swooped and dived
while catching its prey, very clever creatures.
