Can't a guy get some shuteye!

Uploaded: June 19, 2006


Screech owl trying to sleep under assaults from pair of mockingbirds. Taken noonish from about 4 feet away. I have lots of shots of him with his eyes wide open, but this is more unusual.

Lynn another wonderful owl. So cute. Lots of great detail!! #467940

Unique capture, Lynn. Like the detail and the fact that his one eye is open just a little bit.
