Default More Snowy Owls

I went again to the beach looking for the Snowy Owl before the storm hit Long Island and I found a beautiful female (or juvenile) that posed for me during 7 hours.

It was a very cold and windy day but I captured so many great shots of this beauty.

Marcelo, hard work pays dividends! These pictures are great especially on a cute subject like this Snowy Owl. It is such a doll!

Such a beautiful bird. The surroundings certainly compliment the owl too. Simply fantastic.

Thank you Michael,

I am an amateur photographer using a camera for the last 20 years and I am very new in the Wild Life segment but I am hooked to it because the challenging of capture this beautiful animals in their natural habitats.

Marcelo -
I have looked at the Snowy photos several times - they are jaw-dropping beautiful - simply stunning. I have so enjoyed looking at them. I especially like the sunset ones - God's beautiful creature in a beautiful setting.

I'd be curious to know how far away you were from the Snowy and am I correct they are all of the same bird?

Thanks for sharing your photos.
Evelyn

Hi Evelyn,

Thank you so much for your kind words, I really appreciate it.

I was maybe 18 to 20 mts far from the Owl, and you are right it is the same bird.

I found the owl early in the morning at 10:00 AM right in front of the beach and I spent 7 hours with him shooting while the light changed during the day.

It is beautiful animal and for me a dream come true.

Marcelo

Remarkable photographs, in both snowy owl series. Where were you taking the photos? What lens did you use?

Thank you for the comment.

I found the Owl at Jones Beach - New York and my gear is a Nikon D7100 + Sigma 120-300mm f2.8 + 2.0 TC.
