One evening while camping, I was sitting on the picnic table bench waiting for my husband to return from the bathroom so we could start setting up our tent when an owl swooped down next to me and picked up a mouse. It happened so quickly that I wasn't able to identify the species of owl, but it awesome to have this close encounter with nature. I was also surprised (and so was the mouse!) by how quietly this large bird could find and attack it's dinner. I was unaware of either creature until the owl swooped down.
