Picture of the Day - "By The Light Of The Snowy Moon" - Feb 7, 2017

Tonight, we decided to go to Sackville again with my daughter and see what we could find. It was just before sunset and we did see a few hawks and crows. We parked the car when the sun was setting as I decided to take some photos of the sunset. Just as we pulled over, my daughter said "what's that?". We looked to where she was pointing, but at first didn't see anything. Then I saw something flying in the sky. I put my camera up to get a better look and saw it was a snowy owl. She was flying by the moon, still lit up with the setting sun in front, but also backlit by the moon. If it wasn't for my daughter pointing her out, we would not have seen her :) Canon 5D Mk lV & Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM + Canon 1.4x lll teleconverter –  @560mm, 1/2000, f16, ISO 4000
