I went out several times to photograph Snowy Owls this year but found them to be fewer in number and more elusive. The ones I did find were less interested in me than the ones I found last year ( here , here and here ) so there were no long or close encounters. I love watching them and it was a thrill just to see the ones I did find. I photographed this one on February 22nd and was the last one I saw this winter.
We’ll have to see if next year is a good one for Snowies on the prairies east of Calgary.
