I've spotted 3 different snowy owls perched on country roads this past few weeks and sometimes they allow me to park immediately under the pole as they scout about for voles and such. However, I've never felt so bad about spotting birds because I'm sure they want me gone. I spent half an hour pointing my lens at one this evening waiting for it to see something and take flight. I'm always impressed by this bird, even though I didn't get that great shot tonight. Here's one from another day.

Cheers, and thanks for the visit!

Thanks all, it's always a rush when shooting these beautiful birds. I actually hate to bother them more than any other bird I impose myself upon, don't ask me why. They are a magical looking bird and I wish there was a way to grab a shot of them without causing a bit of nervousness on their part for me being so close and on my part for feeling so dang guilty

amazing shots, Norm... i have yet to see an owl of any kind in the wild here, so shots like your magnificent snowy owl are only a dream for me. and i have to say, that chickadee in flight is exceptional! i can't even keep the little stinkers in the viewfinder!
