All on a Sunny Saturday

Postby Andre@Home on Sat Feb 28, 2009 1:57 pm

Went out this morning looking for Owls, and low and behold, my little buddy wanted to to play and pose for me. :D
Also went to G.N.C. and their was lots of activity there.

Andre you are killing me!
George and I were out all morning. We hit that area around 9:30. We saw one owl too far from the road for photos.
Your second snowy owl is the best of your snowy photos this year!

Hey Alex, hate to bust your chops, but I saw 3 on the line, and only shot one. He was on the south side of the road on a fence post. He wasn't fazed by my presents. I was able to get pretty close. Must be my fur hat, I think they see a big fat rabbit on my head approaching :lol:

It seems Andre has the market on the Snowy's just like Alex has the market on the Red Tailed. I hate you both.

Great shots Andre! You sure do have the corner on the owls. Love the second shot of the Red Bellied Woodpecker as well.

Awesome, that must have been a great day for you Andre. I'm still not happy with any of my Redbellied Woodpecker shots yet.
