As winter slowly returns to the Pacific Coast of Canada, I thought about the snowy owls that resided at Boundary Bay, south of Vancouver, during the early months of the year. Snowy owls in these parts are supposedly rare, and dependent on the availability of lemmings on the Arctic tundra. I’m not sure if they will return this winter, but if they don’t, I still have enough photos for a few more blog posts. I ensure this one is rather light, as there are enough serious articles out there already.
One of my favorite photos, in the background is beautiful Mount Baker in Washington State. If you have not seen it yet, please read my post, A Snowy Owl And Mount Baker, Boundary Bay. Okay. Here we go ( I apologize in advance ):
This snowy owl, apparently winking at me.
While this one gave me the eye.
No matter the angle, I still got the eye ( I don’t think I looked suspicious ).
A sleepy snowy owl in the evening sky.
This owl was a little timid.
This one was being goofy…
and sometimes, there were two hoot stared at me.
This owl looked a little ruffled…
and this one somewhat startled.
I thought she was being cute.
While these looked squeamish…
and very serious.
The final word from this owl, “Hey you! Leave us alone and take everyone with you.”
I hope you enjoyed this post. I really wish I had a better lens. Santa, are you listening? For larger photos, please visit the Facebook pages for Camino My Way and Camino De Santiago In 20 Days.
