Snowy Owl (Nyctea scandiaca) User: Brian Morin  (See all photos - 1197)
Canada (Ontario) Kingston - Wolfe Island. We couldn't pass up this beauty. The number of male Snowies compared to females in the winter is low so any time a male is present it is cause for rejoicing. This bird was incredibly tolerant. We shot from the car across the road and the bird didn't pay us much attention. We could only shoot in vertical format. It was too close The dull gray sky offered a perfect contrast for our subject.

Yes it did, especially with the yellow eyes. Excellent. I wonder how old he is?

The eyes are fabulous. It is so much better when these birds have their eyes open. Aging is a tough one but the older the bird the 'cleaner' it looks. Older males are all white.

We were extremely lucky with this bird. It was almost at eye level which was truly a gift.
