    Snowy Owl in action. WARNING: Graphic Images!

    Snowy Owl in action. WARNING: Graphic Images!
    Found this Snowy on a lamp post about 100 yards to my left. She sensed a field mouse under roughly 4 inches of snow about 100 yards to my right (finally had one fly somewhat towards me).

    Great series. You must have removed the graphic images as I didn't see anything.

    Thanks for your comments guys! I've been following the "eruptions" of the last 4 years and have literally spent hundreds of hours at the Airport in Syracuse where a handful spend a couple months. There is usually 1 or 2 that spend the winter and its a needle in a haystack at best. 9 times out of 10 after hours of stalking (and freezing my ass off) they fly off in the other direction. I'd like to thank that field mouse...,

    On a side note, and somewhat comical, I get great results using facial recognition priority C-AF on the owls. 9 point C-AF is great, but I had a hard time nailing the eyes with so many targets, I'm sure it would be the same with Nikon.
