Hi GG, thank you for all your kind comments. I am now on high alert for beaks and poops. An Eagle wanted to "beak me apart" last week, but no poops. :-)

Wow Derek! What an awesome capture! Great composition! I’ve been hoping to see a snowy owl myself! Jealous! Where did you find this little fella? Did you get lots of pics? Curtis

Thanks Curtis, this was taken from my inflatable off Anniversary Island (East side of Saturna). This was a rare and only sighting for me. In the winter you are sure to find Snowy Owls along Boundary Bay. There is a great trail along the ocean behind the Boundary Bay airport. One of my favorite walks when I lived in Vancouver. cheers Derek

Morning Derek! Yeah i know about the boundary bay hotspot! Ive seen many owls around there but for the last few years the snowy has been a no show! Though some say its a 4 year cycle!? Well regardless this is an excellent picture! Best wishes,Curtis
