I found this Snowy Owl today in Muskegon County, Michigan. He seemed to be a bit tired after being out in the sunshine all day as I caught him yawning.

Very cute picture. Good capture of the moment.
Jeff – a very nice shot.
Who said Owls couldn’t be cute…. Take that pussy cats and puppy dogs…. ;)
Wow, that has to be a once in a lifetime photo! Amazing!!
This is a really awesome shot! Great job!
Where do you find all these birds?
Oh, you got one! I’ve been reading about their appearances in large numbers here in the Midwest because of the lemming shortage up north. I hope I see one!
Maybe it says something about me, but to me, he looks like he’s laughing at a really good joke. I love it.
lol, thanks. If I didn’t see him closing his eyes and starting to nod off, then wake up with a yawn a few moments later, I might have thought of him laughing instead of yawning too, lol.
How CUTE! & what a great shot!!
Very nice! I’m hoping to get a shot of a snowy this year. They’ve been spotted in my area, just not by me.
awesome photo !!
No way! That is so awesome!
Well hello there little owl. I love that yawn. How rare to catch a serious-looking bird in such a silly pose.
That is an incredible catch! Great shot!
Ahhhhh! How cute! Very tired little guy! Nice shot!
What a great shot…very cute
I ADORE this shot. I don’t know how long it took you to get this, but on behalf of all of us,……….THANK YOU!
Time for a nap! Just a precious, one-in-a-million shot! Kudos to you for the capture!
Thanks! Just before this photo, he was closing his eyes, then woke himself up and yawned, lol.
This made us laugh out loud! Very good….
I say this every time, but your photos are wonderful!
Great capture. Almost looks like a cat.
Wow great photos. I love nature photos. These are great. Good job!!!!
You’ve caught a passing moment at the perfect instant. Fabulous photo!
Thanks for liking my post today.
Birds yawn? That may mean… dinosaurs yawned? Hard to imagine a T-Rex yawning…
Great shot and perfect timing!
Oh wow, that is some shot, so cute, well done.
Gotta love that yawn !!
Fabulous shot a one in a million chance of getting it like that!
Adorable owl..seems to have a great sense of humour:)
To early? Just another good day for hunting.
Reblogged this on MY BLOG ~.
Excellent capture, it seems there is a larger amount of Snowy owls migrating south this year, they have been spotted as far south at Missouri..:-)
Oh how adorable!!! :-)
Snowy owls are beautiful! http://wp.me/p1se8R-2c2
Great photo! Are you seeing them as an unusual species to your area right now? We have them in CHICAGO this winter! Wierd!
Feed me, Seymour!! :)
Love it! Wish I could find one close enough to get a photo!
You captured a great moment. You put a smile on my face. Awesome photograph!!!! I love it very, very much.
This is awesome! I think I will crown it as my favorite picture :)
Way too cool captured shot — what a gift!!
Where o Where did you see this owl? That’s all the Annapolis birders can talk about this week. The Snowy Owl. They’re going to great lengths to try to find one.
That is the cutest shot – and so perfectly timed! How unusual is it to have a snowy owl nearby to you?
Maybe he was thinking, oh bother, just another photographer! LOL! Seriously, another great capture.

My favourite birds. This is a cracking shot. And I know how the little chap feels. :-)

What a moment to see, and to capture. I love Snowy Owls – they have quite a presence, don’t they? Thank you very much for the follow – I appreciate it!
