have you seen this?!
Pentti Taskinen was paddling through the chilly waters of Finland’s Lake Tuusula when he caught sight of a character straight out of a children's book, a little owl. Taskinen held him onto the front of his kayak and then took one of the most adorable and relatable photos of any animal ever. Moments after this photo, the Northern Hawk Owl went over to Taskinen and actually cuddled into his life vest to warm up. Once he’d dried off and regained his strength, the bird took off into the sky on his own, but we don’t doubt Taskinen will continue to keep this little visitor close to his heart.
p.s. happy happy birthday tomorrow to my son~in~love matt, we hope you have the greatest of great days.
much love from california, mom, chuck and o-town!
