Prairie Owls – a one eyed snowy

Spent one morning last weekend roaming the back roads east of Calgary looking for the snowy owls again.

I found this owl just outside of Cheadle. It was a one-eyed beast that seemed defiant in the face of a strong wind out of the west.

    • Hi Jane,

      I used a 300mm F/4 IS lens with the aperture pretty close to wide open. I added a 1.4 extender to get a bit more reach in a few frames.

      I hope you find a bunch of these guys when you get out next.
