Truly, no one likes to be photographed as soon as they step out of the shower. Uncurried. Unfluffed. Unpreened.
The education birds at Ijams have places to perch to avoid getting wet when it rains but they often prefer to enjoy a refreshing shower.
Also, the little red phase eastern screech-owl at the nature center has been a bit sickly, we've been giving her oral antibiotics for a few weeks, so she wasn't at her best.
She's improving. Thank you for asking.
So, why did I whip out my cell phone and snap her photo? I couldn't help myself. She was so adorable like one of Jim Henson's creations.
