Went for a walk after dinner in the dark…

Went for a walk after dinner in the dark, needing some air last night, and walking through a narrow pathway I felt rather than saw a big silent bird and caught just a glimpse in the corner of my eye of big wings.

After a couple of minutes peering into the trees I picked it up; a large brown owl silent in a branch, eyes wide. And we looked at each other for a long time. And then I kept walking.
