I always wonder what the cornfields in southern Canada will offer in wintertime. Our goal was to find and photograph snowy owls on this Starling photo tour I was guiding. My group encountered lots of juvenile birds, which probably meant they had a good breeding season last summer, high up in the Arctic. But to my surprise, several adult males also visited the fields. Inspiration guaranteed!
This winter, snow came late, and the wind blew away most of the white cover. But we still managed to get some good white-on-white shots. And several spots offered a beautiful vegetation background.
All pictures taken with Nikon D5 and D850 and 600mm.
I’ll be guiding this trip again next winter. Hopefully, those magnificent white males will be there again as well!
