Great Gray owl hunting in snow by gregster09 Great Gray owl hunting in snow by gregster09
On my one visit there were some very heavy snow flurries moving through. By the end my camera was soaked and had snow caked to it! It was quite atmospheric and a special experience to see these incredible predators hunting in rather appropriate conditions given that they are northern owls.

Great Gray owl hunting in snow by *gregster09 Greg's work really needs no introduction, having already interviews him for the "Photography-APN Professional Series", his work is some of the best when it comes to wildlife, and this shot is nothing short of amazing! A gorgeous shot, that every bird shooter could easily envy, with focus that is simply to die for! ( Featured by kkart )

Love your photos. I am an artist (also from Ontario) and I would like your permission to draw or paint some of your bird photos. They are really clear and sharpe and that is what I am looking for. Please look at my site to see what and how I draw and paint. Please think about it and let me know. Thanks

Holy crap...the patience I can imagine it takes to get this kind of shot...you deserve some kinda medal. The focus is perfect, the timing with his wings spread and swooping down. At first glance and even as I continue to stare at it it doesn't seem like it could possibly be a photograph and it must be some kind of really well done photomanipulation (which I know isn't the case) but just...wow!
