Thanks. She was a beauty at eye level which is hard to get. Too many Snowy options tend to be 'pole birds'. The lighting in this case changed as we were taking the shots. At first too bright so the owl's eyes were almost closed but then clouds moved in and everything changed and she showed her beautiful colours.

We did well in a very short stay. It was only three hours.
