You could hang this picture on your ceiling and call it off-the-wall art! Let's pretend you're a caterpillar crawling along the ground in the dead of night. Glancing upward, you catch a split-second glimpse of one frame from this fast-action sequence: the great horned owl's radar has locked onto a running rodent that's about to become another link in the food chain. You must have seen hundreds of pictures of this event, but did you ever see it from the worm's-eye-view?
