A friend reminded me that it was one year ago yesterday that I had photographed this gorgeous visitor from the Arctic. Its chosen location was two hours from my home but that didn’t stop me from hopping in my truck and high-tailing it to the spot.
My time with it was uneventful, very much so. In fact, I only captured a couple of images with its eyes open, this being one of them. The rest of the time it was quite content to close its eyes and soak in that warm, winter sun.
Snowy Owls only appear in Colorado every few years and thus far, none have been seen this season. It may not happen but I will be keeping my eyes peeled and my fingers crossed.
