[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Snowy Owl is a large diurnal white Owl with a rounded head, yellow eyes and black bill.
Snowy Owls are active during the daytime, from dawn to dusk. They have a direct, strong, and steady flight with deliberate, powerful down strokes and quick upstrokes. They make short flights, close to the ground, from perch to perch, and usually perches on the ground or a low post. During hot weather, they can thermo regulate by panting and spreading their wings. Snowy Owls are very aggressive when defending their nest.

Fantastic capture of the owl skimming the surface of the snow. You managed the motion and white of the bird and snow very well, indeed. Well done, Peter!
