We were very happy to see this Snowy Owl when we showed up to the neighborhood where it was seen hunting the neighborhood from the roof tops. There are very few birds I like to photograph more than owls and this is one of the top 5 on my list. They are majestic and striking and can be very accepting of your presence or they may be very shy. Either way, it is important to make sure you give them space. This owl is a female, which can be identified by the amount black checking. Males tend to be very white with very little markings.
