The is the end of the 3 part series of this pure white snowy owl found on a Long Island beach. After taking the first image I noticed the batteries in my flash had run out and I was in the process of changing them when the action started. With freezing fingers that were working slowly, I chose to drop the fresh batteries into the sand and took images 2 through 7. Then I loaded fresh batteries just in time to illuminate the open mouth seen in the last image. After taking a bust to capture the open mouth, I picked up the sandy batteries and dropped them into my pocket to be cleaned when I got home.

I let the highlights go rushing to take the photos and Iím glad I captured them.

Comments and suggestions welcome,

Morris

Nice job capturing these. I don't use flash. The birds have hot spots in their vision afterwards, just like we would.
Sweet images. This guy's making me sleepy.

Nice set Morris with this very pleasant light. Too bad for the perch though.

That is the nicest snowy I have seen on the forum; pure white. Now you just have to teach him to use a more natural perch!! I think the non-flash shots look better IMO. Don
