Did you find the Burrowing Owl in the center of the photo?

I wasn't sure whether to post this picture, as the owl is a little hard to see. Then I thought about it more, and I liked how the image invites you to appreciate a Burrowing Owl's ability to blend in with grassland habitat. I liked how the owl's mottled brown-and-white feathering matches the dark-and-light patterning of the surrounding vegetation.
This photograph was taken on 27 February 2015.
