Great gray owl winter flights
I love watching Great gray owls fly – particularly when they launch. The snowstorm that hit Bragg Creek on Thursday night created a wintry scene that was still hiding spring on Saturday when I went out. It made for an interesting backdrop to this owl as it took flight.

:-0 Coming in and I wonder…how long and how cold were you to finally grab that shot, before realizing it doesn’t matter as people wait for years for such 🙂 So cool ~

So gorgeous! Looks like floating in the air, and with the glowning white background I simply thought it was a drwing on a white sheet!

Such a magnificent animal captured on screen, Chris, this is beautiful! The level of details in its plumage we now see in this photo, definitely reminds us the wonders of Nature!

These images – incredible! Wow – they are almost of another world! The colours and markings on the owl against the backdrops – almost a study in monochromatic shades – and the details! Awesome! 🙂
