Nothin' to say but FANTASTIC!!
I especially like the first 2 captures that have such wonderful detail.
Is it just me or does the Snowy always look like it's got a s*@t-eating grin on it's face?

Great shots, I got a shot of them yesterday down at the end of 72 on the mud bay trail. I looked at the link in your signature, and recognized the photo from fishing with rod. Small world..lol

They aren't here regularly, so most of the time the guys up North are making ME jealous ;)

That was a fantastic bit of luck. I had just settled to shoot one on a log and then I see out of the corner of my eye this movement... "In flight" I call out, and the shutters start whirring ALL around! It landed right in front of us... so close that the final landing shots had only 1/2 a body in them!

Definitely got that "strutting" look to it! Thanks.

Hey Dave! That's where we were on Sunday. along with the other 70 odd owl fans. We had a friend in from Hong Kong that had been DYING to see the owls. We planned to go out in the grey rain on Sunday... what a pleasant surprise!
