This playful owl perches on a branch and pops its head out of the snowy leaves - just as if it's playing the classic children's game, peek-a-boo.
Its animated eyes spring wide open when it realises that it's been spotted by the camera.
The cute little owl was playing peek-a-boo with photographer Alexandra Ion in a snowy park near Bucharest in Romania.
