"GGO to Snowies - owls 3 days in a row . . ."



Still in the UP and will be for the next two days. Today Snowies were the main subject and we ( son, daughter-in-law, my wife and myself) were able to find this willing subject on a fallen barn in the hay fields south of Sault Ste Marie. Surrounded by 3 feet of snow!

Thanks for looking - - Al

Thank goodness these owls are not native here. I like your first composition. That talons combine well with the nails.

Great pictures. I love how bright the white is on the owl. Looks like the owl is doing a little wink at the camera.

Nice sharpness Al! This certainly has been a great winter for owl activity both in Ontario and the northern Midwest. Very exciting.
