Even better, I was wondering if this was tidal, (salt) water or a little pond of fresh water. A salt water bath seems like it might be itchy. Love the Head dunking and the water spray. Great set once again with beautiful clarity and exposure ...

What a great series. The bathing sequence is something I gave never seen before with this bird.

Many thanks everyone. I'm going to try my luck again this weekend but I'm not expecting much...no reports of Snowy Owls all week. That could either be a bad thing or a great thing. :D

Great series, Duane. When I got to #4, I said "what the h@@#? It looked like the owl had exploded. Made me laugh. Thanks for sharing, as I am living vicariously through your 500 f/4 :lol:


All I want is just a little more than I'll ever have.
