Burrowing Owl Sleeping

Sleeping burring owl and it’s all about the eye lashes.

This burrowing owl kept winking at me and I was wondering what was going on.  When getting the photos on my computer realized that he was falling asleep.  Haven’t seen a sleeping burrowing owl before so this was a treat, especially after seeing those eye lashes.  Adorable.

Taken with Canon 1DX and Canon 500mm F4 IS II with 1.4X III teleconverter, handheld out my car window.

    • Thanks Joe. They are very abundant in Lubbock. Very tiny little owls but fun to photograph.
