I love how owls react to perceived predation threats! The little Western Screech Owls at work do the same poses.

zomg I love this owl! I've watched the video of it on youtube tons of time, and love showing it to people who've never heard of it.
Except I've known it as the transforming owl...

The thin version somehow reminds me of a praying mantis. I think it's the face.

It's likely a camouflage pose in order to blend in to branches against predators it can't frighten off.
