Optical Confusion

If you take my word that the tree trunk at the top of the photo is:

1) out of the water
2) in the foreground


that everything appearing below that tree trunk is a reflection in the water, except for the rocks in the foreground,


is that an horned owl reflecting, upside down, sitting on the white branch to the right of the photograph--with said branch completely obscured by tree trunk in the foreground???

RE: Optical Confusion

Talk about early Sunday morning confusion. I do take your word on points one and two. AND that everything appearing below that tree trunk is a reflection in the water, except for the rocks in the foreground. BUT, is that a horned owl - No! (but of course it "could" be. But I do not think so.

Don't worry I worked at this. I copied it to a file then turned it upside down and back to front, cropped everything but the owl-like image, and I thought why am I doing this. Yeah, I'm crazy when I could be having my Zzzzzzzzzzzs! :heehee
Good night Michael. Good photograph as usual.

I see a squirrel tail too.


RE: Optical Confusion

haha, I did the same thing as Pauline! I thought maybe it was a squirrel, like Carla.

Cool pic!

RE: Optical Confusion

Nice shot I have no idea what it is!
