Today my dear friend and I embarked on a journey of discovery. We did not know when we set out whether or not we would be successful in even locating a snowy owl let alone photographing one. We searched for over 4 hours and covered over 100 miles during the day. Just before the sun set, we spotted this beautiful female looking for dinner. She was the 5th snowy owl we saw today and the closest one to us.

As a photographer, if you can afford your gear (judging by some of the lenses out there, the ‘least’ you can do is offer the farmer some printed enlargements of your work alone with contact information (business card)
