Stalking a Snowy Owl Part 3 (9 photos)

Final part, as the story goes my group and I found this Snowy Owl in a frozen over marina at a waterfront park, This owl is very hard to spot initially until you know what you're looking for. All shots in all 3 parts were with the Sigma 500mm F4.5 and Sigma 1.4x

So we find the owl once again...

Spotted again back at the marina, this time we got out on the ice to get closer

100% (1:1) crop of the previous image

It looks rather cute when walking, perhaps a little annoyed with us but still though we are close we ar also keeping out distance

Finally we got too close, it decides to fly out into the middle of the marina harbour

Just about to land

Very nice of it to pose for us with only snow surrounding it

last shot... we left it alone after this.
