Hello Emin,
Awesome shot of this gorgeous Snowy Owl, you could not have asked for a nicer pose or cuter facial expression. Probably a female judging from the markings or perhaps a juvenile male. The entire image is of the highest quality. Outstanding work!!
Every year a few are reported to come as far south as Northern Ohio, but they have eluded me as of yet. I hope to someday view one in the wild, this is my dream bird.

Delighted to see a picture from you, Emin, after such a long absence.
This Snowy Owl seems to well integrated into the white landscape of its Canadian habitat.
Super sharpness and white balance.
Thanks and keep posting!

Hello Emin,
Only in your 31 years of age you are taking stunning picture. I can see that photography isn't for all; at least not for me :-)
But late but wish you Happy Birth Day.
Excellent BG and nice isolation. Like POV and those yellow eyes. Perfect exposure on such white white feathers.
Thanks for sharing,

what a shot - congratulation!!
