[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
From my trip to Ottawa.
Snowy Owl has strong, straight and regular flight, with strong dives and rapid highs. It performs short flights, near the ground, from perch to perch, and often sits on the ground or very close.
During warm periods, it self-regulates bating or extending wings.

Hi Peter
absolutely great pose with wonderful yellow eyes
Snow and Snowy owl are a bit greyish so I tried a ws

Hello Peter.
I love this picture. It's a difficult picture because there is little contrast, but it's reality. Mimicry of the bird is formidable. Contact with their splendid eyes.
Have a nice day.

fantastic camouflage, greetings Ori

Great photo and must be such a sight to see in the nature. Excellent shot with the owl coming toward you.

Congratulations and the quality is superb and professional.


Again a very nice sharp photo, very simple in its composition and B&W feel.
