Camouflaged Owl

Can you make hoot what it is yet? Natural camouflage leaves this American owl barely visible at the entrance to its nest

An eastern screech owl is barely visible at the entrance to a tree hole - thanks to its perfectly evolved camouflage.
These incredible pictures were taken by photographer Graham McGeorge, 42, in Okefenokee Swamp, Georgia.

Usually solitary, screech owls nest in a tree cavity, either natural or excavated by a woodpecker.
They have either rusty or dark grey intricately patterned plumage with streaking on the underparts, helping them to blend in perfectly in their woodland homes.
