This guy was in the pen next to the Red tails he was so cool to watch up close, sure wish they would have taken these birds out for display. Taken with the 300 f4 at f5.6 at 1/30s

I like the feet too Mike, but those eyes are incredible.

Any idea why this guy was in the refuge? Seems like a crime to pen up such a beautiful wild animal.

I agree, love the eyes of the Snowy Owl. I really would like to get a shot of one. I am going to try a place here in the Pacific NW called NW Trek. Thanks for sharing these.

Thanks frank, the eyes are mesmerizing
the bird had a collision with a plane and lost its wing

I would do anything to come up north and shoot these guys in the wild, look forward to your posts from your trip to the Trek
