'Time for the Snooze Button' - Yawning Owl Just Wants 5 More Minutes

A photographer based in Rotherham, England, captured the very picture of tiredness when he filmed this decidedly dozy owl.

Gez Robinson told Storyful the owl is one of a family that lives in a graveyard in Rotherham, South Yorkshire.

“Each year they nest and have young. This was one of the parents, it was sat on a gravestone and I was taking photos, then decided to video it,” he said.

“Just as I did, it turned its head and started yawning. It had probably had a busy night feeding its young and was tired.”
