Winter Owls

I recently made a trip to the Calgary Alberta area in search of owls, and while I didnít get a Saw Whet (still my nemesis) or a Great Horned, I did see a Great Grey and Snowy. This was during a Polar Vortex which came over the area, so these were taken in temperatures of -25 C to -40 C, which made things interesting. The 4th image shows the Great Grey activating its Nictitating Membrane, a semi-transparent third eyelid also present in fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals.

Wonderful images Colin, you've got the makings of a great calendar with those 12 shots right there.
TFS!

Very nice set Colin, your a brave man in those temperatures. I was there in September, but I really enjoy the snow in your images.

Thanks. Yes, with the number of images I see on IG, it seems I'm the last person on the planet to see one.
