Great gray ascension

Great gray owl's ascension - © Christopher Martin-6677-2
This Great gray owl was hunting for field mice in West Bragg yesterday.  It dove a few times, easily punching through the thin covering of snow left by Friday’s snowstorm.  I watched it fly between fence posts before it flew up to this branch.  It turned out to be a good vantage point as it caught a mouse on its next dive.

I do want to also wish everyone a Happy Easter!  I hope everyone enjoys time with family and friends over the weekend.  We started the morning with a fun hunt with yarn that led the kids to their respective jackpots.  While we were outside, I looked for our resident rabbit but he was nowhere to be found – so no Easter Bunny photographs this year!

  3. Great shot! The owl is not even paying attention to you — were you in a blind?

    Amazing! As I continue to follow your site and see what you post, I am always blown away but the excellence and quality of the images. It’s so difficult to happen to be at the “right place at the right time” much less catch a creature in flight so well …. clearly, you have the patience, dedication, talent and well, luck too, to be so graced. Totally amazing.

    And Happy Easter to you and your family 🙂
