What more do you really need to know? It’s an owl swimming. Who wouldn’t want to watch that?
If you still want a little more context for the video, wildlife photographer Steve Spitzer was minding his own business, watching birds like a boss on the shores of Lake Michigan in at Rogers Park Beach in Chicago. There, he witnessed a Great Horned Owl get attacked by two Peregrine Falcons, and fall into the watery depths. Luckily, the owl was able to swim for awhile and heal itself before flying off.
The one issue I have with Spitzer’s description is calling the owl’s swimming pattern the breast stroke. It’s clearly the butterfly. Spitzer may know birds, but he clearly doesn’t know swimming technique.
