I’ve had few chances to get a good photo of a snowly owl in flight, over the snowy tundra of Alaska’s north slope. On my last trip there many were spotted but this is the only one that I had a chance to photograph, and that was a long reach. I used my 500 with a 2x on a 1D, which makes a 1300mm lens. I even cropped this frame but still think it can produce a 16 x 24 inch print o.k. Net time, I’m hoping for something a little closer. They are truly majestic birds.
