My annual snowy owl workshop in Canada is in two weeks, and I'm looking forward to capturing more flight pictures of this amazing raptor. None of the workshop participants expect to get the number of great shots they end up with, but we have so many photo opportunities that you can't miss. In this shot, I was lucky to get low angled side lighting beautifully illuminating the owl's face and those intense yellow eyes. The contrast of bright yellow against the pure white feathers is stunning. This is a female who had attempted to grab a mouse but missed. My settings were 1/3200, f/11, and auto ISO. I used a 100-400mm lens plus a 1.4x teleconverter; the focal length used for this image was 560mm. The frame rate on my Canon 1Dx Mark II is 14 fps. For birds in flight, a fast frame rate is essential to enable you to capture every nuance in the wing and body positions.
