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

AND

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

THEN

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???

LOL.

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.
