We had some snowy owl visitors for the first time in I believe 5 years to the Lower Mainland area this season. So, I drove out to Boundary Bay to see them myself for the very first time in my life.

I couldn't get any to fly, instead all they did was sit there looking sleepy and couldn't care less about life. Nonetheless, I took pictures anyways. C&C welcome.

1) Full eyes - I think he saw an Eagle, which is why he's paying attention

4) It snowed! So, I went to see Snowies in the snow.

7) Ok, so I finally saw one move, let alone fly. It was far away, but I'll take it anyway!

8) Yawn! Or "Get the hell away from me!"

Nice shots and variety!
I wish I had that many snowies in one area to shoot.
