I always think of them as the clowns of the owl world! They are a favorite subject of mine, but I just don’t see them much anymore. Nice, intimate capture of this behavior and great BG.

So entertaining! Cute pose- interesting the difference in the two pupils, presumably from light different perception. I often wonder why they do this iconic head flip. Well done!

+1.  The difference in pupil size attracted me to this image even before the great head tilt.  Womderful timing.

Very special pose, the different pupils make the perception of this cute owl fun. Very beautiful light.
