"Hunting Snowy Owl"
Tue 21-Jan-14 12:55 AM by Rassie


Female Snowy Owl hunting in a farm field in Stayner, Ontario. It was -12 degrees Celsius out today, with a wind chill of about -20C. The wind created blowing snow that obscured the background and made the owl stand out more prominently.

D7000 with Sigma 150-500 mm.
ISO 640, F/10, 1/2500 sec, tripod.

Thanks, Al.
This was my first attempt at moving targets and using burst mode. I managed to get quite a few keepers, so despite the cold it was worth it.

Lovely Koos. You really should show a larger shot because the background is quite "spooky".

I agree with Al on the eye contact. Great shot. Looks like there are a lot of Snowy Owls in Southern Ontario.

Thank you, Rick.
This is serendipity - being in the right place at the right time. I could not create the snowy white-out conditions myself. Sometimes things just come together....

Super image Koos. I like how he comes off the background and I also like that you included the background.
