Snowy Owl Photography

Although there is concern within the thoughts of birders, and bird photographers, these snowy owls are quite alright with respectful photographers.
Using a decent tele-photo or zoom will result in great shots, without disturbances.
Also getting the shots and getting out is the best option.
At some point in time they need to feed, and the more people who "get that" the better off all will get along.
The birds came to a place where there are many people who use the dike for walks and they are accustomed to seeing people.They like busy airports, and even hang out at the golf course where golfers walk by constantly during the day.

More on the return of snowy owls to the area. Apparently about 30 of them

These are SO beautiful! I went a few weeks ago, but I only have a 300mm so the owls are quite tiny in my photos...didn't want to get too close! I agree with your comments, hopefully other people will beging to catch on...and show these owls some respect. Your photography is absolutely amazing, and an inspiration. Thank you for sharing.

What lovely shots. I have yet to go looking for them. I was nervous about the crowds and adding to the mayhem. But I imagine, as you say, they've had some time to adjust to their celebrity by now.
