Powerful Owl in the Moonlight

Powerful Owl in the Moonlight

I am a Powerful Owl in the midst of the moonlit Australian rainforest... From this high position, I survey all the gleaming rain-drenched leaves below... My prey scatters across the damp leaf litter, The myriad sounds of frogs, birds and insects all sink out of focus... I focus in on the sound of my prey... Scurrying swiftly under a tree root... And deep into an underground tunnel... Only to emerge seconds later. My prey stops under some bracken and I prepare for my attack... I position my body in my high-up branch... And lean over the edge, throwing open my wings... Silently, I glide down to my target... And in half a second, and a flurry of feathers, I make contact and latch onto it with my talons! ... Wait... In the darkness of this moonlit rainforest... Something isn't right... Suddenly, I am confronted by a giant creature... Eyes wide, I witness two heavy legs stomping right towards me, at incredible speed... Booming out a deep prehistoric call
