Nice photos! Have been thinking of going there again. How many owls did you see? There were about 6 when I was there in February, 2012.

At one point we saw nine snowy owls in the air at one time. A predator must have flown over and suddenly they arose from everywhere.

They were easy to find. I approached them very slowly. The pictures above are of just one owl. I spent almost two hours with him and he never flew off. I would keep moving in six inches at a time until the owls filled my lens. Never had one fly away from me under these circumstances.

Lots more detail at my web site:

I had an awesome 46 hours at Ocean Shores.
