You Don't See What You're Not Looking For

I recently read a short story in which the two main characters watch a bald eagle that has just caught a snake, as it is mobbed by two screaming gulls.

“That was amazing,” said Stacey.

“Want to know what is more amazing?” asked the interpreter. He didn’t wait for her response. “There are at least thirty people in this parking lot...But you and I were the only ones who saw that. For everyone else, it didn’t happen.”

Too true.
