We are clearly not alone. These two aliens were keeping their eyes on me in the Orchid House of the Botanic Gardens in Göteborg ….
We were back at Ganora Farm last week updating our research in the Karoo and came across this strange creature. We had taken a short walk above the cottages to get some cellphone signal and stretch our legs after a morning of desk top work and came across a pair of oddly matched eyes peering up out of the grass. I thought ‘he is an owl’ but Kate took one look at the photo and said ‘looks more like a frog’. So let’s settle on a frowl.
I guess most of us have a few of these pictures. The ones where you are taking a picture of a rock on Kompassberg mountain and you see an eye in it, or the face of a baboon on a rock in the Botanic Gardens, Göteborg.
And then there is the owl peering at you from the trees at Trädgårdsföreningen, Göteborg and the man in the tree on Koster Island.
