Ooh! Do you see what mama has?
The owlets and their mama have become the nightly entertainment this week.
Mama owl with a garter snake.
Owlet 1: "What are you doing?" Owlet 2: "That snake was great. I'm Flying! Can't you tell?"
"This is how you fly!"
"And like this!"
"Okay. I'm done you can come out now!"
Owlet 2: "Are you really done? Are you sure it's really safe?" Owlet 1: "Yes. I'm sure."
"It looks like all those silly people are still watching us."
Intermission — Sliver moon and Venus over cottonwoods at dusk.
Owlet 1: "Do you see mama anywhere?" Owlet 2: "Is that her?"

Squint like Clint in the bright afternoon light.
"Is that mama with dinner?"
"What are you looking at you stupid paparazzo?"
