Pueo head on a swivel

This week’s Sunday Stills challenge theme is ‘Layers.’ (See more offerings here.) I thought about the layering of bird feathers, in this case of a pueo (Hawaiian short-eared owl) surveying its surrounds, watchful for threats while also scanning for meal opportunities. Its diligence paid off shortly afterwards when it dove down and snagged a mouse (here).

      Yes indeed. It’s a bit freaky watching the head going all the way round. Terri changed the theme for this week, but luckily this post still worked for the new ‘Layers’ theme.
