Pyro-Art piece 'Waiting for Supper'

This is a slim section of pyracantha measuring 13cm x 3.5 cm, which I've used to tell a simple tale..I do love to conjure stories around my artwork! We see two tawny owls..I believe the one in flight is Mr Owl - returning from a fruitless search for a dainty morsel..all the while Mrs Owl has been sitting on her favourite stump, awaiting his return. Beneath the stump, down amongst the tree roots, someone with quivering whiskers is sitting very quietly...Do our pair of Owls sense her presense..? Will any of these three creatures receive supper this night...? One may turn this piece of wood in ones hands..and imagine a

variety of conclusions to the tale..
