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!
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?
