That's a wonderful image. The snowy owl sure looks out of place without snow! Well done! Good to have you back.
Have a fine day.

beautiful so beautiful image, with difficult white colors, a very good photo!
Interesting thoughts and powerful presentation from you Rick. Lovely image of an incredible Snowy Owl. Good depth of field and sharpness. The detail in the highlights has been lost a bit, especially around the head, but that can be easily adjusted in Photoshop.

exciting view of this snow owl. The subject stands out marvellously against the smooth soft brown background. Thr pattern on the feather is so special.
you have presented it in a very convincing composition.
Lovely creature to be appreciated.

What a great shot, superb pose I love the expression you have captured, it is so funny as the Owl looks so suprised and the eye contact is great, nice details are excellent colours.
Best regards Siggi

Quel regard !!!
La lumière me parait un peu forte mais c'est certainement à cause de la couleur dominante du sujet.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Good to see another posting by you. Lovely eye-contact of this Snowy Owl with the photographer. Very special to make a photo of this owl. If this was possible in Holland, it stands in all newspapers. Very good sharpness and details. The white seems a bit overexposed. taken from a perfect low POV.
Remarkable and deserved dedication.

It is not only a lovely picture, but a great present to Jane. Happy birthday Jane and all the best to you and Bob.
I think to see this so beautiful owl was a magic moment. You captured it so well while resting and looking at you. A real star. Thank you for sharing this nature wonder. Friendly regards,

Hi MF Rick,
Very cute:) Photography isn't just about the technical details (which are excellent), it's about capturing the right moment, which you've done well with here. This is also nice tribute to our Bob's wife. I also wish her a happy and healthy new ages from here!
I also share your thoughts that we lost some very special people:( we lost our familial spirit indeed.
Anyway, TFS this beauty and have a nice night MF!

I share your sentiments completely Rick, but still try to upload a posting from time to time to keep up with the site.
As usual, your present addition is a beauty, an expertly captured owl in a perfect low angle shot. Shannons would love it, I'm sure.

Sory Rick that I missed this one. It is nice to see that from time to time we can enjoy one of your images! Are extraordinary by both technical quality and subjects. And this one is for me special: I never saw this species , but I admire almost every image. Excellent image and nice dedication too.
All the best,
