The winter of 2013/14 saw an irruption of snowy owls. Plum Island, in Massachusetts, is a hot spot for snowy sightings. I headed up there on several occasions to try to capture a good image of an owl. My first two trips I saw a whole lot of nothing. On my third trip I finally got the images you see above. I spotted this owl along the side of the road, just before Plum Island. She was hunting in the marsh from the top of a telephone pole. She took off over the marsh 3 times. I was only able to get a few keepers.
To see all the shots from the day go to my Snowy Owl Gallery.
