"First Flight" depicts an adult and fledgling Great Horned Owl at the moment before the infant owl makes his first flight. It is the quintessential experience of parenting and the essence of sharing.

​"Not what we give, but what we share,—
For the gift without the giver is bare;        
Who gives himself with his alms feeds three,—
Himself, his hungering neighbor, and me"

James Russel Lowell
