Snowy Owl Part 2
Here are two more images of the snowy owl that I saw yesterday. The first image shows the bird resting with its wings casually splayed out to the side. The owl spent nearly an hour in this position until a crow flew nearby.
The second image shows the owl in a defensive crouch just after the crow flew by. The owl stayed in this crouch position for a little more than a minute. Then it stood up and walked around before settling back into its rest position.
I was thrilled to see this owl in such a clear spot. Later in the morning it flew into some very thick ground cover, which made it very difficult to see, much less photograph.
