It’s always a surprise what the corn fields in southern Canada will offer in wintertime. Of course, our goal was to find and photograph Snowy owls on this Starling Tours phototour I was guiding again. And my group was treated with lot’s of juvenile birds, which probably meant they had good breeding season last summer, high up in the Arctic. But we didn’t only see juveniles, but to my surprise we even had several adult males in our local fields where we were working. That meant lot’s of fun of course!
This winter snow was a bit late, and wind blew away a lot of the white cover we were hoping for, but at the end, we managed again to get some good white on white shots. And some spots offered some nice vegetation back-grounds too!
All pictures taken with Nikon D5 and D850 and 600mm.
Next winter I will be guiding this trip again of course! Hopefully we will get to see those magnicifent white males again!
