sleepy owls

Today on my fathers birthday, I heard there were longeared owls very closeby!

Perfect day with beautiful sunshine,
I decided to grabb the owl by the ears.
Which is a free translation of the expression...'to take the bull by the horns'
so I drove along.
On first sight they looked like woodpigeons roosting in a tree
but at closer look they were definitely longears!
Sitting in a perfect tree...without lots of hiding branches
Both were sleeping, dozing away.
ears being blown by the wind.
