This owl was taking a 'nap' while I was scouting around

Just could not believe I had come across him in daylight...had left my friends
finishing off their coffees while I ventured outside the restaurant for Hummingbirds...WOW!
I am really pleased that I spotted him...not often seen there in Costa Rica

V2 another view of him..V2 as no feet shown

Going to show off a favourite English bird tomorrow..then back to Costa Rica

Thanks for stopping by

Lillian

...and the moral to that story.... don't let your friend go outside with a camera before you finish your coffee WinkGrinGrin

Not only do you find them but you get the clear angle. Beautifully done, Lillian.
