Cute Overload :D
I knew it!
Peter G. made this picture and Hayao Miyazaki made the movie, Totoro.
This little guy is matchingks with the snuggly treee-knot owl from an earlier post!
indeed! perhaps they are communing across the continents, in their inimitable owlish way…
What is it?
Yes! What is it?
His owl-cave even has notches that match the shape of his ear-tufts!
Probably an Eastern Screech Owl. Either that or a small totoro.
Had to look up what a Totoro was and out of the context of the movie, I must say It looks a bit creepy to me.
I much prefer the real owl in his tree than that cartoon whatever it is.
How is there no hovertext??? :-(
Also, very cute widdle owlio! :-D
and the cave door is heart-shaped… like the tree loves hosting owlies!
hi guys, i’m the photographer – i love seeing my pictures on cute overload. this owl lives a few trees away from the owl in the previous post – they are both eastern screech owls – this one is grey phase and the other is rufous phase. if they mate we’ll see some brown phase owlets in the spring :)
Clearly you need to watch the movie!
Totoro should be listed as “must-watch” movie for the CO crowd.
Definitely! And not scary at all, Gigi! Promise! My niece & nephew loved it when they were little. They used to tell me they wanted to play Totoro by jumping on my tummy & having me carry them around. I usually told them I wasn’t a big enough Totoro to do that and would sent them to tackle my bro instead. ;-)
“Totoro” is worth watching for the Cat-bus alone!
*cries and loses faith in all humanity*
…and both (owl and Totoro) have been said to be an omen of death. Very cute death omens, though! ^_~
I may or may not have uttered the most girlish shriek
Is that an obese owl?*(^&*&#@????
I thought I heard something.
errrr…. totoro is so cute it’s a guaranteed overload! It’s even my chrome skin!
I THOUGHT THIS WAS TOTORO!!!
What IS that?!
An owl? A bat? Or what?
