I was able to check another item off my bucket list while in Churchill. I have seen many owls where I live but I have never gotten a photo of one and was so excited to see this beautiful Snowy Owl on our boat tour. Tim was the one that noticed it first as the Arctic Terns were squawking and diving at it. Our guide drove the boat closer and I was able to get my photos. Here is what we first saw from a distance and I think I had my zoom lens on full zoom to even see it!
I kept taking pictures as we moved closer for fear of it taking off if we got too close.
The landscape here was stunning with the water, rock, greenery, purple flowers and the soft colour of the sky.
When I zoom in you can see he is looking to the right.
Now looking to the left!
Looking straight ahead!
Zoomed in! I was so glad I was able to zoom in more on my computer and he kept in focus on this one.
Next post will be about the family of polar bears we saw next! I’m trying to keep this in chronological order so I journal everything.
