p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Mo' Snowy Owls


Here's a few shots from a few weeks ago. The recent snow storms have made the snowy owl farm inaccessible by four wheel drive vehicles. Fortunately I have a hard drive full of snowy owl images from when they were more readily accessible. Here's eight for now. Next post will be another behavior set.

Great set Herb. My favourite is #3 but I would spot remove the OOF snowflake in the centre of its mouth (at least that is what I think that is?) #4 is also a great shot and I think your best IF shot you have posted thus far.

Super set Herb! I like the snow on the face, he looks like he just had his hand in the cookie jar

I'm liking #5 but I think you were light challenged! It doesn't seem to have as much "pop" as your other posts! Don

Hi Geoff, If you' re talking about that beige looking oval spot, I'm pretty sure that's just a coloration on her tongue. I have 11 open beak frames and it's in every one. I guess that will make her more identifiable in the future too. Thanks for the pick and comments.
