Still Snowy

Snowy Owl that is.  As of today it makes almost a week since she has graced our area and every last photographer who has and continues to be there is thrilled about it. On a humorous side note… we were walking along the top of the dam looking down at Ms. Snowy here when we notice a family walking down the hill and entirely too close to where she was perched.  Not cool, says I, not cool!  As the family obliviously kept walking getting closer there arose a chorus of over 20 something photographers yelling…

STOP! STOP! STOP!

The family got a clue and walked in the opposite direction and Ms. Snowy didn’t fly off,  that is until someone walked too close to the photographers with his dog on a leash and she flew further away.  Hoomans can be so clueless and inconsiderate sometimes!  It’s not like you couldn’t see the line of photographers with all their gear pointing in one direction.

If the weather is sunny tomorrow we may go back again but this time with our tripods for the ultimate shot!  But aren’t her fluffy feathery feet cute? She looks like she is wearing fuzzy house slippers… with deadly claws.

    Beautiful snowy owl, hope she sticks around till you get around with the tripod.
    Great how you always get a shot of the owls with their claws on show 🙂

    • Thank you 🙂 I had some things that needed to be done around the house so we did not get to take our tripods to see her. I enjoy getting shots of owls doing other things besides staring back at me… gives them more character.
