Snowy Staredown

A fellow bird nerd had let me know of a location where he had seen reports online, and in person, of snowy owls not too far from where I live. Naturally, hearing the news and never seeing one of these birds in the wild before, I hopped into my vehicle and away I went. At first I didn't see anything and then.. it happened! A female snowy owl landed in a tree. a little later I could see another one, a male too! I was ecstatic! The fellow who told me about the sightings ,met up with me later and he was walking up closer to her when I snapped this photo of her, giving a look that could kill! I don't think she was too pleased with him coming closer.
