In early 2012, I headed up to Canada in search of Snowy Owls as I had heard in the news that they had flown south for the winter in unusually large numbers.

 

The news was right, they were easy to find and, on a couple occasions, I found them hanging out together. Likely up to no good as all I got were evil glares ;)

 

Wildlife photography is a tricky thing...sometimes you set out thinking "I'm going to shoot wildlife", and have no idea what you might see. Other times you say "I'm going to Canada to shoot Snowy Owls..." but it's not like landscape photography, where you think "I'd like a nice sunset over the Grand Canyon..." and you can somewhat visual the end result. Wildlife photography doesn't work that way, you go with the flow and even though I recently went to Canada thinking "I'd like to photography Snowy Owls..." I never imagined I'd come home with an image like this. I love the thrill of wildlife photography :)
