What's the difference between an owl and a vampire in this discussion?

To me, a vampire is sort of a super-owl; owls stay up late and sleep late,
but vampires stay up till dawn (Mike used to do that occasionally during
summer vacation, though he hasn't done that for a couple of years, he's
getting more of an owl and less vampire as he ages, though he prays that
he'll never become a super-lark like his dad; 4 am is what you stay up to,
not when you wake up, or so he fervently hopes).
