No longer content to rule the sky, the owl has extended its terrible dominion into another element of the wondrous universe: Earth's hydrosphere.

Self-described "birder at heart" Steve Spitzer told Chicago's WGN-TV he shot footage of this great horned owl swimming in Lake Michigan after it suffered an attack by two peregrine falcons. According to Spitzer, the owl flew away before bird rescue arrived at the beach.

Obviously this bird did not need to be rescued; it is God of all things.
