Owly scowls or: scowly owls

March 10, 2009

The reason I love owls almost as much as cats is because they do not approve of humans either. A lovely person who is also a great photographer has captured this attitude very well. Are you prepared to be scowled at by owls? I know I am!

“You’re learning to dissaprove already my son. Keep it up.”

“Get off my lawn!”

I suspect owls of preferring to sit up high just so they can look down on us. For your enjoyment, I have made some close-ups of these disapproving birdies:


This makes so much sense

I love cats, I think that’s obvious by now. After cats, my favourite animals are owls. They kind of possess the same qualities (haughty, independent, don’t take crap from no-one look on their faces), so this picture I found on the Kattalogen page makes so much sense:


Haughty animals

November 17, 2007

I love cats for a lot of reasons, one of the top three of them being that they can look at you with such disdain it’s palpable. They are one of the most haughty animals on the planet, but there are quite a few contenders that rival the cat’s abilities. This is a shortlist of my favourites, but of course suggestions are more than welcome!

In alphabetical order we have:

– Camels
Camels know they are better than humans, and are not afraid to show it. We losers don’t even have humps of fat that we can convert into water, so why on earth would camels think much of us?

– Capybara’s
Never afraid to look like they disapprove of everything you say or do. Or have ever said and done. And will ever say or do.

Group haughtiness

– Kangaroo
Yes, you may think these animals are cute and cool, but they sure as hell don’t feel the same about you! This one is airing his harbls like nobody’s business and looks totally not interested in anything but thinking how he’s so much better than everything.

I will NOT close my legs thank you very much

– Llama
Llama’s show how they feel about lesser lifeforms by spitting at them. Or they just totally ignore them, like this one is doing. Check out alpaca’s for further reference.

– Owls
I think owls are almost as cool as cats. They ignore, they disapprove, they just give great face and haughtiness all year round. I have a serious animal crush on all owls, and this picture shows why that is. Great horned owl, take it away! (more…)
