Great Horned Owl

Here's a Great Horned Owl from last Sunday near Martensville, Sk.
I'm lucky there was some blowing snow at the time the photo was taken. A shame we can't get that nice effect in all our Owl photos !

PS. My Saskatchewan Birds 2010 Calendar will be here tomorrow, so folks who live locally can email me to collect theirs in the afternoon. I will priority-ship the calendars to my friends in the US, to hopefully get them their orders before the 25th.
Sorry for the delay, they will be mailed out much earlier next year !

This is a beautiful shot, Nick. Every feather in its place and I didn't seem much noise at all. I wonder if you can tell me what lens you might have used for the picture?

Many thanks guys !
Abraham , I used the Canon 100-400 L series lens.
