I've been driving around trying to find a snowy on anything but a hydro-line and this is the closest I've gotten.

I used the 500 and extender to get these shots.

Thanks for looking.

Jim

Thanks everyone for the kind comments. I believe a young snowy has more spots and they loose them as they age.

Thanks again for looking.
