That's the kind of shooting I can get behind. Thanks for sharing it with us.
Thank you for the absolutely beautiful pictures. I haven't seen a snowy owl for years. We are blessed to have him as a visitor and doubly blessed to have a great photographer within our midst!
Hedwig!Snowy owls are not that common this far south. That looks to be a female or maybe young male. I am sure it will find Chicago full of tasty rats to eat.
Thank you for posting positive things too. ;o)
Great pictures! Though...that looks more like a stone than a beach...just sayin'
Fantastic! Thanks for this, you are fortunate to have seen and photographed this. Very cool!
Positive Loitering Animal-style!
Damn interloping bird. He's trying to oust the indigenous birds and gentrify the hood!Last time I checked Canada is not a Chicago neighborhood! Oops, I just looked on Wiki. Apparently the winter range of the snow owl does extend a few hundred miles to the south of here. In the summer they are all about "O, Canada". Like far northern Canada.
I saw this bird, or one just like it, up in Edgewater last week. Nice to know I wasn't hallucinating!
that's awesome :)
Beautiful! It's been a few years since I've seen an owl around here (and that one was a great horned owl). Thanks for sharing.
Beautiful! Thanks for sharing...something nice for a change!
Thanks for sharing your photos of these beautiful birds. I hope I spot one in the flesh on my walks along the lakefront.
I saw the owl tonight when running on the path nearest the Lake between Foster and Lawrence. I was glad I had seen the pictur yesterday and knew I wasn't imagining things.
