They Grow Old So Fast

Fledgling Great Horned Owls learn very quickly the power of an angry glance. Above, we see a sweet youngster relaxing in the woods. He is blissfully unaware of my presence and his cherubic face reflects it.

Below, he switches to his menacing look as soon as he notices me. The drastic change is alarming, impressive, and amazing.
