Wow. Great find, subby

It's pretty obvious if you look not for a bird shape....but look for feather texture instead.

Pops right out.

I found it from the eyes. Cute little fella.

Also, since this is an owl thread...   You don't see many of those.

Can you spot it? Postman's photo of owl that social media users say is 'impossible to see'

As we all know, social media users are farking idiots.

So yeah, I found it in about a second and a half.

Paul said: "I had gone purposely to try and find the little owl, which is easier said than done as it lives up to its name and, as you can see in the picture, can be hard to spot.

WHAT THE FARK IS IT'S NAME?

Seriously, who farking writes this shiat? The person who wrote this shiat didn't look at that quote and say "Gee, I wonder what the name of this owl is that makes this such a perfect statement?" And decide to either ask Paul or the interviewer(In case someone else did the interview)? It's like they just plug in quotes from these farking people without even bothering the read the farking things.

And to save everyone the clicks on this stupid story, it's all about this (very cool) picture:

It's definitely well camouflaged and a cool shot, but you can find the owl...

Oddly enough, the actual name of the bird is... "little owl." I know this off the top of my head only because decades ago I put together a Birdmobil card model of one that my sister had brought back from a trip to England.

FWIW, for anyone who may be interested in amateur ornithology, found an interesting app the other day for bird identification. Called Merlin, developed by Cornell, and has packs of birds for many regions.

Had cause to look for such a thing because I took a pic of a bird the other day and didn't know what it was:

App identified it as an eider, and it appears to be spot on.

On my phone, that looks like a marshmallow. 😋

But seriously, I'm going to have to look for that app, because every once in a while I really want to know what kind of bird I'm looking at, and I haven't really been able to figure out how to really Google "We'll, it's kind of a reddish brown, and about as big as a kitten, with long black legs" and get an actual result that works. Thanks!

I used it for awhile, but it wasn't as helpful for North Texas birds. It is a cool app though.

If you can hook a sister up with a butterfly ID app, I'd LOVE that.

Some brief googling finds LepSnap... no idea how useful that is, but it sounds like it's in the right field.

/Googled "visipedia butterfly", Visipedia being the backend for the bird ID app.

You, my farker, are AWESOME. :) I love shooting macro butterflies, and it's often hard to find those critters when I'm going through the shots, later.

Have a Blue Morpho!

You both are awesome. Thanks!

Thank you :) I have more butterfly shots on my deviant art page (in my profile). I like Macro, dirtside, and butterflies are a multi-planar challenge (up, down, back, forth, animal motion, flight, etc.) that's not too dissimilar to underwater shooting.

You are immensely talented. I love the spider photos too. Very well done indeed.

Took me about 5 seconds. Most of that tree is exposed and no sane owl would be there. That fork is nice and private. Once there, yeah, look for feather patterns.
