It sounds like you guys had a lot of fun. Going out shooting pictures is great in itself but when you can actually come across interesting birds, it makes it very rewarding.
That is a very cool pose you captured here. Totally different from all the other great pictures of snowy owls we had here in the recent past. Very nicely done!

This is beautiful! What a sweet pose! Wonderful composition - great white against blue. Just fantastic. This one really captured my attention out of the gallery.
This may be one of your best images Asbed...It shows such emotion and caring...this one truly rocks as my kids would say...it does all that it was intended...naturally and emotionally...wow! I am truly impressed. You have come a long way in such a short time!

This is a most unusual pose Asbed. It is quite lovely. I can see why you are so pleased with the photo. It is an amazing capture. Thanks for sharing it.

Beautiful presentation, very nice pose, she seems to be
perching on a very thin branch.. Amazing! beautiful blue
sky.. Well done
This is a peculiar pose, seems to be preening.Even something like taking a bow.This seems to be a big owl on very dainty looking branches.Love the blue sky.I didnt get your point of doubling your zoom by using Jpeg.

Hello Asbed. I have seen a few posts here in TN but none is quite interesting as this perch. Excellent exposure of finely captured plumage and details. The spotless blue sky makes a very pleasant background and the twigs are very graphical in this composition. Regards. Jusni

This beauty looks so strange sitting up the tree like this - but well done Asbed for your second poating of the Snowy Owl.

You many not have any green grass but you have this beautiful Owl instead!! Wonderful capture of this one in an angel-like pose. I expect it is preening itself. Excellent sharpness and nice white plumage against the blue sky. Very well composed too.
TFS and regards, Ulla
Quelle belle prise,la pose de l'oiseau est fantastique. Les détails du plumage sont extra et l'exposition est parfaite.
Merci je l'envoie dans met favorites

I was one who was expecting an inflight Cardinal but I'm not disappointed with this lovely Owl. The pose is beautiful - looks like a she because it looks like she is wearing a flowing gown. Beautiful against the blue sky.

Stupenda immagine, una rappresentazione "mistica" di questo splendido gufo delle nevi, eccellente realizzazione. Complimenti. Ciao Maurizio
Il a l'air très élégant dans cette belle pose que tu as capturée. Il se détache magnifiquement de l'excellent ciel bleu. Bravo.

I missed this beauty!
Great capture of a Snowy Owl in a fine pose and delicately positioned on the small branches in a fine composition against a blue sky. In Sweden this is a very rare species. So thanks for sharing this fine capture,

Tu as raison, un harfang très gracieux. Tu as réussi ici de bien capturer le comportement de cette beauté.
Je hâte de revoir le harfang.
