Awesome Snowy Owl Season
7

This has definitely been one of the best snowy owl seasons I can remember.  There has been lots of opportunities as the trio of snowy owls that are visiting our south shore beach have been easily found almost daily.  It has only been one time when I've gone were I couldn't  find at least one of them.  I truly am going to miss this bunch when they leave to go back up north.  Here are some various pictures.

Real nice set Pietro.  I'm starting to yearn for other subjects though I'll defiantly continue to visit the owls.

Not me.  I'll take these opportunities for as long as I can.  It could be a number of years before it's this good again.  I remember walking for miles without any luck trying to find the one snowy we had last year.  I've been gratefully blessed with so many pictures that I'll still be processing them in May.

Nice........got a couple along the  beaches in my area (So. Maine) but they are mostly hanging out on roof tops of homes.  I like your owl settings mo' better.

Where are these taken?

Best, Mike

These are taken at a south shore beach on Long Island NY.  They’ve been sleeping in the dunes during the day and putting on a show for us at sunset.

This is why I will still go back though I don't have a processing backlog.
