Snowy Owl taking off after hunkering down for a rest in the sand dunes of the Plum Island Wildlife Reservation in Newburyport, MA. The wind was blowing and it was freezing cold- I had my 500mm lens ready for action…after several long minutes standing to get the shot with the wind never letting up, I opted to lie down in the sand and kept the lens as steady as I could on this beautiful snowy owl. Just when I thought the photo opps were over, he decided to take off for hunting prospects amid the frozen flats of the reservation and my barley mobile almost frozen fingers pressed the shoot button and captured this photo. I was thrilled with the outcome. Enjoy!

Based on the harsh elements of the day, I think this photo is outstanding!!!!

Very difficult photo to shoot, given the weather
Elements on the day. To catch this bird in flight
Is awesome.
