Default Snowy Owl - Take 2

Viewers seemed to like the first one I posted, so here is another. Unless it is the same one. Hard to tell to my eyes. These were shot in daylight without snow falling so a wee bit better. There are a gazillion birders and photographers surrounding these birds so I don't spend much time near them, but my wife wanted to see one Sunday.

I don't know if he was sleepy or blinded by the light.

Nice. He must have got tired of all that big glass staring at him.

What a beautiful bird! Your photo captures his beauty, and the vivid blue sky accents it!

Wow, it would be wonderful to see one "live"; like you have!

Thanks all. And Raghu, I am content with these because it means he felt comfortable enough to nap, and they are so heavily bothered by people it is good to see this.
And Carol, keep your eyes out whenever you drive by open places and fenceposts, as this is a year many of them have come down from Canada.
