While I was waiting for the snowy owl, two kestrels flew into the vineyard. This guy was so busy grooming and coughing up a pellet that he let me get fairly close. D300 w/ 500 f4 AF-S & TC-14E, 1/1000 f7.1 ISO 320.
Around the corner from the snowy owl a farmer with a sense of humour put up a pair of plastic owls. On hearing reports from passing cars not a few photographers have rushed off to shoot these other owls.
