An inquisitive owl has been captured on a weather camera in Montana, USA, after it was caught inspecting the curious object. In the video, we can see the owl in an ultra-close-up shot as it darts about the screen looking into the lens. 

As complex as we humans can be, when it comes to animals we are really simple creatures. It doesn’t take much for an animal to coax oohs, ahhs and giggles from us. A curious look here or a funny movement there and, without even realizing, the animal in question has become a viral sensation. Just last week, we posted about a cat who has discovered his owner’s not-so-secret pet cam and a magpie who was caught stealing a mailman's letters.
