Beauties, haven't seen one here for a couple years. Looks good at 1000 mm.

Great shots! I need to move to FL! We see them here but the forest is so dense, I need to crank the ISO up to ridiculouS numbers to get a shot off!

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.

It's like you can look into his soul though those eyes! Funny, it looks like he should have a mouth under his beak! Excellent close up shots Bob!

thanks for looking Al- this pair and the borrowing owls that live in my neighborhood are about the only owl fix I get. I'm sure he has a nest nearby but I haven't found it

this is a wilderness campground- cleared somewhat but still pretty dark. high sun helps

There have been snowies spotted around me, but I have not seen any personally this winter. It was not for lack of trying :-)
