I have been doing nature related photography since 2005 and have never had a Snowy Owl or any raptor catch a wild rodent and decide to land directly in front of me let alone during golden hour sunlight. It was an amazing experience.

The pro's spend so much time to get a great shot that we mere mortals could never achieve their results.
Clearly, you have found a way. I think, and I may be way off base here, but it seems to me that you and
these magnificent Snowy owls are communicating at a certain level that transcends casual encounter and
enters the realm of the sympathetic. You seems to know where they are and have a passion to see them
and they sense your interest, know you by sight and consider you a non-threatening part of the environment.
You appreciate them and they appreciate your appreciation. Everybody wins!
An those of us who never even get to see one, let alone photograph one in warm buttery light, well we get
to view your success. To reinterate ... everybody wins.
What will you do when all the Snowys have gone?

I will have to visit my Therapist :) Warblers in May. Very well spoken, you are a natural writer. Thanks for the kind words.
