While kayaking in Lake Tuusula in Finland recently, Pentti Taskinen spotted something jutting out of the water. As he came closer, he realized it was an owl. Worried that it would freeze to death in the cold water, Taskinen helped the owl up onto his kayak. The owl soon inched closer to Taskinen, cuddling up against him and eventually nestling partway under his life jacket. Taskinen paddled toward shore and once the owl dried off and warmed up, he flew off. The kindhearted kayaker managed to snap some gorgeous pictures of the adorable owl. Check them out!
