This is Hootie, the owl inhabiting a friend’s tree. Here he’s striking pretty much the same pose I did this afternoon. I was trashed from a late night urban mountain bike ride, so after church I went home to take a quick combat nap before heading to the church picnic. Well, I ended up zonked out entirely through the potluck, but I did get a chance to visit Hootie for a few minutes. I can tell right away we’re kindred spirits.
I expect that we’ll be spending more time together, since we appear to be somewhat in tune. As such, I hope to share more photos of this little guy this summer.
