A Chance Encounter With A Snowy Owl In Flight

Well it was an interesting morning to say the least when we encountered this snowy owl on our outing. When we first saw him, he was just sitting there, looking handsome, taking in the new day. After a little bit he decided to take flight, a couple of times. First to the opposite side of a field, then to our surprise, the second time he flew, it was towards our location. He flew right by us to the other side. What a majestic bird!

All taken with Sony A73 & Canon 100-400mm IS L ll with Canon 2x lll @800mm. Was also shooting in crop mode in the Sony with 1.5x crop (total focal length @1200mm).
