Jaak Põder - Pygmy owl


When I met this bird for the first time, I was quite amazed how small it was. It would have filled barely the palms of my hands. Sometimes the word ‘small’ in a book and in reality has different feeling to it.

    Great picture of this little owl!
    The way he sits reminds me of a beautiful Christmas decoration, so I would like to have this tree in my living room with Christmas :-)
