This master of disguise, or better known as an eastern screech owl, is barely visible at the entrance to a tree hole - thanks to its perfectly evolved camouflage. The owls have either rusty or dark grey intricately patterned plumage with streaking on the underparts, helping them to blend in perfectly in their woodland homes. Eastern screech owls are about six to 10-in tall and found throughout North America. These incredible pictures were taken by photographerGraham McGeorge.

Marinus is a 28-year-old from the Netherlands, and he makes GIFs. But not just any GIFs: his Tumblr, Head Like An Orange, is a collection of some of nature’s most stunning, weirdest, sweetest, and funniest moments.
