I've always been fascinated by owls and natural camouflage. This little guy meets both interests. It makes me wonder how many times I've passed by a dozing owl in a tree!

Taken with 7d ii and EF 500 ii

Thanks for looking!

Hi Mike...

You have a very sharp eye even to have noticed this owl. Your photographic skills paid off with these two great shots. Hope you didn't wake him from his nap.

Thanks
Tom

^^ Sharp eye, indeed. Don't think I would have seen the owl with as camouflaged as it was. Nice capture.

Amazing camouflage. The only time I spot them is when a group of people have gathered under one.

Thanks for taking the time to comment!

I had a little help in spotting him/her. Definitely didn't wake the owl, I'm not of the type that yells or bangs on the tree to get the open eyes shot!

Oh my, these are fantastic! Had I not known...I wouldn't have known. I too have been marveling at camouflage of the critters in my area but this is one of the coolest examples I've seen documented.

Well seen and done; thanks for posting!

Mike, wonderful image to show just how difficult it is to find let alone photograph this owl species. Now that you know it's roost I suspect you can get some open eye shots at some point. I've yet to see one but I suspect many have seen me

I understand they are dawn and dusk hunters, so I'll need to adjust to that. I'll check back for young as well, but plan to give them a lot of room/privacy
