It’s a hoot!

On my walk through the neighborhood today I saw this strange face.

Pareidolia

I pointed it out to the tall person and he told me that during the Middle Ages shapes seen in natural objects were known as Lusus Naturae, or Jokes of Nature. It was the belief of medieval naturalists that Nature actually played jokes by purposefully placing shapes such as faces in objects for people to find.

Hmm. I wonder if that big-eyed owl knows he is a Joke of Nature?
