Snowy Owl in the Snow storm
Friends, today we found a Snowy Owl in Crex Meadows.We haven’t seen one of these in Crex since 2005. This shot is really an extreme crop and a big stretch for my telephoto lens, but we were thrilled to see this owl even at a distance. This was a remeinder for me to get back to work after a short hiatus at Thanksgiving. til Tomorrow MJ
