Bird Photography Weekly # 61


This photo is from this past January, the Snowy Owls were reported being seen all along the East coast. The Snowy owl was one bird I just had to see and top on my list, I talked hubby into walking on the Assateague beach for 3 1/2 miles one way to see this Snowy owl. The photo is cropped, I did not want to get too close and spook the beautiful owl.



This Snowy Owl was seen sitting on the top off a sand dune on the Assateague beach.

I love owls! They're on my "sure wish I could get a picture of one" list. These are great photos. Glad you talked your husband into walking (and walking...) to get the pictures.

Bob Bushell said...

Yes, that is a good one. I'd love to take one, and put it down in my galleries.

Richard said...

That first picture is beautiful. That bird is definitely on my list to see.

Oh my gosh..what a treat to see these beautiful raptors. I like that you didn't want to disturb it. For some people seeing it is more important...Michelle

Great Owl photos, Eileen! This is one the birds I want to see before I leave the U.S. for good. But...travel to the East Coast is out of the question at the moment.

Janie said...

what a beauty! You were lucky to get such a good shot.

Wren said...

Nice photos, and nice hubby to walk all that way with you! Who have thought to find a snowy owl at Assateague?

Kirigalpoththa said...

That is a superb photo! Brilliant capture!

Mike said...

Very impressive bird!

Larry Jordan said...

Excellent shots of the Snowy Owl Eileen! I would have walked as far as I had to to see that bird. I will be looking for sightings of this bird closer to California and try to catch it this winter.

Crafty Green Poet said...

oh what gorgeous photos, stunning, I'd love to see snowy owls

EcoRover said...

Wow, that is awesome! We would see the snowies once in a great while where I grew up in the Alleghenies--folks said it was because the snowshoe rabbit population had crashed so they came south for food.

Nicole said...

Beautiful bird and shots!
Lucky you :D!

diane said...

What a gorgeous bird, well worth the walk I would say.

ROSIDAH said...

Hi Eileen, I came from Amanda Moore's blog. Beautiful owl shots! Have a wonderful week :).

Gel said...

WOW! Gorgeous bird and wonderful photo captures. I know they are in our area but I've never been able to photo one! Love seeing it on driftwood/beach.

Mary said...

Amazingly beautiful! I don't think there can be a more beautiful bird. Lucky you! They are at the top of my "want to see" list, but I don't know if I will ever get fortunate enough to see one.

Gallicissa said...
