How to pick up owls. (vine by o-ji)

Cropped photo of a painting I’m finishing now for my upcoming solo show at @thinkspace_art opening Feb 27th next year.
It’s oils on plywood. Big thanks to @moss_von_faustenberg and @lukasuicide for the photography and reference! #rodluff #owls #neonforest #australianart #arcadia #mossphotos #suicidegirls #thinkspaceart #thinkspacegallery #thinkspacefamily

Don’t worry if you can’t find the Department of Awesome Camouflage. They’ve been taking lessons from the Eastern Screech Owls in Georgia’s Okefenokee Swamp. Photographer Graham McGeorge is exceedingly patient and adept at spotting these masters of disguise, who spend the daytime hours roosting inside trees, emerging at night to hunt for their meals. Judging by these stunning photos, the owls seem to know just which trees to pick out for themselves. Their feathers blend in so well with the color and texture of the tree bark, it would be almost impossible to spot them were it not for their intense yellow eyes.
