All I want for Christmas… Is a snowy owl to photograph.
This image, taken almost four years ago, was one of the last times I was able to photograph one. These beautiful creatures are rare visitors to Colorado in the winter, or at least are rarely seen. I do tend to think they are here every year but given the wide-open expanses of the plains, they just aren’t seen.
Thus far this winter there has been one report of one of the Arctic visitors in the state but none since so it is just a matter of being lucky enough to spot one.
Come on, Santa Claus, help a guy out! 😉
