Photo by @cristinamittermeier // I had always wanted to see one of these Pygmy owls but they are too hard to find. When they are full grown they barely reach 5 inches in height and they are nocturnal, so it is almost impossible to spot them in the canopy of the rainforest. I was both delighted and sad to find one living as a pet with this Kayapo family in the village of Kendjam. I later learned that this girl had found it injured and had nursed it back to health To see more images from remote corners of the world #follow me at @cristinamittermeier #nature #love #beauty #brasil #amazonas #women #kayapo #culture #indian #bird #owl #buho #lechuza
