Snowy Owl


Last Sunday afternoon my husband and I took a drive. We knew where one of these beautiful birds had been spotted a couple weeks earlier. It was a bitter, blowy day and we spotted this one up on an aerial. My husband took the photo, hand held, out the window of the truck. It did not seem to be bothered with us taking its picture. It did eventually fly away and we came away happy. For more Camera Critters go to

Owls are so special. I have never seen one in real life. I did do a slide show of pictures of them on my blog a while back. The pictures are absolutely fabulous. Come by and have a look.

A great photo of this snowy owl. I have never seen one in the wild, or even a captive one, just in shots such as yours. Very enjoyable, thank you.
