Snowy Owl at DeKorte

Snowy Owl at DeKorte

This Snowy Owl put on a three hour show for birders and photographers lined up along Valley Brook Road. At one point it crossed the road 20 feet directly over our heads. Those of us with tele-extenders mounted on our lenses were caught off guard and were only able to capture part of the bird full frame!
