We both know this is a picture I would never be able to shoot! Brrrrrrr It was worth your pain and suffering because it's a great shot. The Snow Bunting looks wonderful sitting on the snow bank overlooking the very snowy field. I love the open beak, the sparkle in the eye and the good details. I get cold looking at this:-)
Great job! You managed to snap a good clean pose. I admire your determination! I know just how freezing fingers feel while holding a freezing cold camera. I always carry "Hotties" in my pocket. They are chemical hand warming packets. They work really well for warming up numb fingers. They also make them to put in your boots. At least you, and we, were rewarded for your effort. Be careful now!!! We'd miss you too much on TN if you should freeze somewhere!!!!!

Well you go figure..on Monday night we are supposed to be -16 F...and the wind tonight with 15 F is 20MPH...I am frozen in...and power has been on and off all day...and this image almost reminds me of how I feel:-) Exception being that I cannot fly off! And it does have sun with a nice side lighting!

nice capture from this snow bunting.
This bird are standing inn good position on the picture.
Another fine capture in the snow, this time of one of my favourite species, the Snow Bunting!
Here it is really caught on the snow, taken with fine lighting, great snow structure and light management. I like the way it is calling and the catchlight in the eye. You did well to battle with the cold to take this.
Well done and TFS this beauty,

Great shot...you're a brave photographer to get out in that cold. Us Texans prefer to hibernate when the temperatures drop close to freezing.
Lovely shot. A fascinating subject.

Ciao Asbed, brrr, poor little bird in the snow.... very cold composition, congratulations for this wonderful capture, great determination, bravo, very well done, ciao Silvio
J'ai toujours voulu voir ces oiseaux mais jmais eu cette chance. Il faut que j'aille me promener dans le coin de Mirabel, il semble que ce soit là que ça se passe! C'est une belle capture lumineuse de cet oiseau superbe! Merci!

Yet another beautiful shot, Asbet.The bunting looks sad and lost, singing for a mate...I guess.
Very well done!

I see large flocks of these birds everyday in the winter,but they are hard to get a good picture of.
You have done well with good detail.
The plumage markings and colours show well.
