The Snowy Owl Invasion Continues

Today I was lucky to photograph another snowy owl. This one was very distinctively marked, so I knew that it was a new one for me. The owl was far away when I first saw it. Then it flew very close and I was able to photograph it using a van as a blind.

In an effort to speed up my frames per second, I have gone back to shooting JPEGS when photographing wildlife. RAW frames just jam up the memory buffers, because they take up too much space to record quickly. With the help of Lightroom and Nik software, I am able to make this image look as I saw it.

This has been a banner year for snowy owls. It has been a thrill to see so many owls!

  1. Great shot Greg. Was this taken at Duxbury Beach? I didn't see any on my last trip out there, so it would be good to know if they are still there. Thanks a bunch and hope all is well with you!
