When you think of camouflage in the animal world, owls might not be top of mind.
But indeed owls are masters of blending into their surroundings, waiting for their prey to be in range of a strike. They wait patiently, using their impressive vision to spot their target. They can then swoop down silently on their prey, utilizing special feathers that eliminate noise from their wings.
Here is an astounding collection of owl images, in full camo-mode. Via DeMilked:

[…] Impressive Owl Camouflage on Display, Can You Spot Them? […]
I’m having great difficulty finding the owl or owls in one particular photo – lots of limbs with no leaves.
Of course! Thanks for the comment
Yes indeed! We must protect these wondrous creatures.
That was so beautiful and touching, for some reason too. I hope we don’t destroy them as well!
That’s really cool, thanks for sharing! 🤎🦉
