Female Snowy Owl - Beach - New England

Here come the Snowy's!

Our first sighting was a gorgeous and huge female on top of the dunes after hiking 3 miles in search of my first Snowy Owl in New England. She decided to head down to the beach instead. We approached her slowly making ground as she looked away and by staying low. Sun was setting nicely behind us. Step by step we were at a very close range. She knew we weren't a threat. Temps were in the -5 range and windy.

If you follow my photography, you know how picky I am with my images and distracting elements but no matter what's in front or behind these owls, they simply own the photograph.

I've been sharing more images on Facebookexternal link.

Canon 1D MKIV, Canon 800mm L @ f/8, 1/1320 sec, ISO 640 in Manual mode.

Thanks!

Nothing distracting here, great shot of a beautiful bird.
