Great shot of this Screech Owl, you show the beautiful camouflaged plumage wonderfully. Excellent detail and composed nicely on the diagonal branch.
I have never viewed one in the daylight, I think the only times I have even seen one has been in the headlights of my vehicle. Your notes are interesting, I never would have suspected that a Blue Jay could or even would try to take on an Owl.

Hi Greg, a superb frontal capture of this very beautiful and cute Eastern Screech Owl which it is also a novelty for me. It has a exremely camouflage colour and pattern like a dried tree trunk. Perfectly shown and captured!
TFS and cheers,

Beautifully taken owl! Your notes mention that it tries to pass itself off as a branch stub when it is threatened. It sure looks like it could be a piece of a tree. It would have to shut those big eyes though. Great detail, colora and BG. Very well done photo! TFS.

I've seen a lot of photos of this owl, but this is the best! Fantastic sharpness, details and clarity in the photo. Great colours, also in the OOF BG. Excellent frontal POV and DOF.

Most of your photo are good captured. I thought when I see this one , bird is well camouflaged as its color if he is on rocks. By the way, probably you took this shot in close distance. Congratulations.
