Getting closer to Snowy Owls at Holland Marsh

Photos by BarrytheBirder

I spotted two Snowy Owls in the Holland Marsh today.   One was on Woodchoppers Lane and the other was on Strawberry Lane.   The pictures above of are of the Strawberry Lane owl - a male.   I am limited by most powerful lens(70-300mm) and am always walking that fine line between physically getting as close as possible and not scaring the birds off.   The one above decided I had gotten too close and took off, leaving me with a couple of shots of its rump.   Oh well, it's the closest I've got to one this winter and they do show some action.
