Snowy Owl (Nyctea scandiaca) User: Brian Morin  (See all photos - 1111)
Canada (Ontario) Wolfe Island- Kingston. Despite another snow dump today, winter is getting long in the tooth. A few Snowies are still present in the Kingston area. This attractive bird sat concealed on the ground until late in the day. I got a few pictures in low light with its eyes open, always a plus.

I think when there is snow, there should be snowies. That is amazing shot of this magnificent bird. Well done Brian!

I love the look. The eyes appear to be almost luminous and I did nothing to enhance that. You could see this in the field. It was great.

One of my favourite Snowy shots on the site. Brilliantly done.

Thanks. This is another one of those you had to be there situations to get the full feeling. I cautiously approached the bird to a safe distance to avoid spooking it, then seeing the eyes aglow in the setting sun was incredible, almost hypnotic. I try hard not to spook my subjects and I succeeded. I left when I was done and it remained for a few minutes more before heading off to hunt.
