01/01/16 New Year’s Snowy

Posted: January 3, 2016 in Uncategorized

I started the New Year off with a 6-7 mile trek down and back on the beach to see the one Snowy that is at the Jersey Shore. Spent the day shooting with friend and wildlife photographer Harry Collins (Harry Collins Photography). The conditions were not ideal for photos, it was overcast, windy and pretty dreary. But, it’s still always exciting to see a Snowy Owl. We were quite far away and these shots are heavily cropped. Harry and I always respect the Snowy’s space, as most wildlife photographers do. The only thing that disturbed him was a juvenile bald eagle that flew above for a short time. The Snowy hopped off the piece of wood and hid under some branches.

Snowy was quite relaxed until the eagle showed up.
