WOW ! what a superior in-flight shot of this male Snowy Owl,
and shot with your heavy lens in the hands, very fine POV
and the way it is framed, superb focus great sharpness
and details of the white colour tones, a kind of in-flight shot
of the Snowy Owl that i would love one day to do it Rick, TFS

That is a great in flight image.I like the pose of your snowy Owl.The image is sharp with good detail.The timing was still good.I do you like your new body and lens so far ?
What an impressive photo. Very beautiful natural colours and excellent sharpness. I find the space left and above a bit tiny, the photo is a bit out of balance to me. Fantastic blue sky in the BG.

This Snowy Owl is a beautiful creature, I love the angle you captured him in. I'm sure Asbed is jealous of this heavy lensed image ; ) Picture perfect!

At first glance I thought that it was seagull. However, it is charming owl. Its wingspread as well as composition of the shot are brilliant. Your heavy monster (600 mm lens) is really not the most convenient tool for bird in-flight shooting. Nevertheless, the result is very impressive. I also am impressed with nice exposure and reproduction of white colouration of the owl. My compliments and best wishes.

Perfect timing to have captured this impressive shot of this owl in full flight.Really nice sharp image throughout and good sky contrast.Thanx for the interesting note.
Terrific image of a Snowy Owl! I've never had the opportunity to capture an owl, flying or still. I don't go where they go, I guess. You caught this one very well. The owl looks as though it has just spotted something, and is changing direction to go after it. Very good details and colours.
I thought that I could see a little noise in the shot. I did a WS to get rid of the noise. I also made a couple of other adjustments. Your shot is fine the way it is. I just wanted to see what a variation would look like.
I wonder how Owl's flight compares with other birds' on sonar?!?
