Hello, this is the same Snowy Owl posted 2 days ago,
in this image the Snowy Owl is posed on top of a barn

image shot in JPEG format too double my 300mm zoom,
when i wrote that i shot in JPEG to double my zoom
it is beacause that habitually i love better to shoot
in RAW format but with RAW i can not double my zoom
and the reason why i double the zoom as you understand
it is to be closer to the subject, this image shot in ISO400

from « All About Birds » website
here is a text on the Snowy Owl :

« At the extreme northern margins of the arctic tundra
lives the Snowy Owl, the northernmost, heaviest,
and most distinctively marked owl of North America.
Largely diurnal, it spends much of its time perched
still and silent on prominent lookouts,
waiting to make forays for prey. »

for the complete text go to this webpage

thanks for viewing and critiques

Bonsoir Asbed, je n'avais pas vu ton autre photo de harfang, elle est superbe, wow! J'adore les lignes de neige au-dessous de l'oiseau, tout ce bleu et ce blanc. Superbe, très belle composition et très belle netteté, merci Asbed!


HA! this was a tough one to get Asbed....not to take it but to make it look so good. You are improving very much over an already keen and good eye...very nice image and well seen...

Hi Asbed, nice contrasts picked up in this shot between the owl and that sky. I like the textures in this one as well. They're good on the owl, but really stand out in that snow.
Well done.

Thanks, John

Hi Asbed,
Very beautiful picture. This Snowy Owl is well seen against blue sky. Sharp focus with excellent color clarity. Lovely composition.

Hi Asbed,

Your whites are great - that's not easy to do. The owl is marvelous against that blue sky and he shows up well in the snow. Nice details of his face and plummage. And this one opened his eye for you!
