Snowy Owl in Flight!

Yesterday I had two great opportunities to photograph a snowy owl. I was thrilled to make this flight shot. This owl was perched high on a dune. It was early morning and the light was perfectly diffused by some thin clouds. After watching this bird for about a half hour, it decided to shift its position about ten feet to the next dune. I was ready. Fortunately, I was able to make a sharp photo of its face as it flew.

It was worth it to get up early and freeze my fingers off to get this shot! It was only 30 degrees, but after sittng still for more than an hour, my hands were downright chilly! Still worth it:)
