Al Owl?

I just heard someone pronounce the name “Al” as “owl”. Odd. Or should I say owld?

I can’t quite put my finger on it, but there’s a strange quality to that picture of an owl you used for this post. It just looks odd and out of place for some reason.

Maybe that’s it… The artist tried to give it a very alert possibly angry expression to add realism, but it also has this overall artificial look to it. Perhaps it’s this strange combination that bothers me.

I also am bothered by the perch that the own is on. It’s just this ghostly tree branch or something that is tangible enough for the owl to stand on, and yet it gradually softens and then disappears entirely into the ether.
