My Mom walked right up to this Snowy Owl with her little point and shoot, clicking until he thought for sure he would get scared and fly away before she got too close. My Mom actually lost her nerve before the owl!!

We super rarely see these guys except maybe flying overhead between the south and the Artic. I figure he was probably so exhausted from flying that he just didn't bother flying away but a bird expert told me that they so rarely see man up North that they often have little fear. Probably a combination of exhaustion and "meh, I could take her."

Definitely a once in a lifetime shot for her.

With great power comes Awesome irresponsibility.

That is quite spectacular!

You know, it seems the larger predatory birds have a smug 'tude. My dad and I passed a hawk on a golf course, probably within 10 ft of it, and the hawk hardly registered our existence. Shortly after that he took flight and buzzed a guy on the nearby green, flew at head height and almost clipped the guys head with its wing.

That owl is just begging to perch on my falconry glove that I don't have yet.

I like how he's looking backwards. Probably trying to help CV find a falconry glove.

Beautiful picture! Beautiful bird!
The only reasonable argument for owning a gun is to protect yourself from the police.
