Hello friends, not having
new photos, here is one from
my late winter 2008 archives.

Fujifilm FinePix S6000fd
1/2000s f/6.4 ISO200 66.7mm
fully zommed 35mm eq: 300mm

The bird not in motion, you will
ask me why 1/2000s ? the reason is
that my Fujifilm bridge camera lens
not being stabilized i always wanted
to shoot at fast shutter speeds.

from Hinterland Who's Who website

« Snowy Owls are rather shy and
usually silent, unless nesting.
They will hiss, scream, or snap
their bill at those intruding on
their territories, and will dive at,
or even strike, human intruders at
their nests. During the breeding season,
the male advertises his presence on the
territory with loud hooting and will
attack any intruding male. »

Bonjour Asbed,
Quelque fois on découvre des bijoux dans ses archives..et cette image en est un. Une image vraiment intéressante et prise d'un angle de vue spécial aussi. Le ciel bleu fournit le parfait contraste à la blancheur de la chouette.
Bonne journée

Beautiful this bird, I like it, white with the blue in the back. Thank you for sharing it. Saludos.

Great bird and great photo Asbed! Very good composition, wonderful colors and very good sharpness. The lighting and the WB is impressive!

Hi Asbed,
Incredible image with great composition of Her Majesty. I like the way you used flash here very much, imho it results beautiful contrast with against the main compositional element and the background (if the bg is the blue sky). Excellent and aesthetic job. Bravo!
Merry Christmas to you & your loved ones, friendly regards, László
