Thank you for sharing such beautiful photos😇💐
"Early One Morning"
So, early one morning while out looking for snowy owls in Canada, we checked out a spot that had a snowy owl sitting on a post an entire afternoon the day before. Sure enough, the next morning she was still there but this time we had some color in the sky as the sun started to peek out from behind the clouds. It turned out to be a good decision to go to this location since within eyesight we had about a dozen different birds to choose from, all with different elements in the frame.

"Winters Sentinel"
One of my favorite images from being out on assignment recently. I found this snowy owl just sitting on this unique fence and looking like it was guarding it's hunting meadow from any other raptors in the area.
"The Moment"
This was the moment we had waited for the better part of an hour. With this beautiful snowy owl perched in terrific spot and with blue hour setting in, she finally decided to take off and hunt. Time was running out, both with the light and the ferry leaving very shortly, I'm glad she decided to entertain us. It was moment I won't soon forget!

Greetings, we seek guidance of how we can benefit from your network.
We are located in Midwestern Uganda district known as masindi, we conserve a private owned forest with lots primates including twenty chimps. Any info of where we can get support is welcome.
"Contact"
As a wildlife photographer I am always seeking for the perfect image. To get that, you must have some sort of catch light present in the eye. Well, as the sun came up from the east and this beautiful snowy owl was looking that way, the light hit just right and contact was made. It just makes the photo that much more intimate with the audience. This is not a perfect image by any means, especially with some distracting brush in the frame but it's a keeper for me. Hope you like it.

"The Rock"
A harlequin drake duck sits atop a rock along the jetty at the Barnegat Lighthouse in LBI, New Jersey. If you head there to see these awesome ducks please be careful on the jetty rocks. They are treacherously slippery and I myself take no chances here, especially with expensive gear.

"The Queen of Sheba"
Ever since this bird appeared on the morning of 12/9/17 I've been infatuated with her. She came in the middle of the night and when I got to the beach I spotted her from the parking lot on a post pertruding high above the dunes. At first I thought it was a seagull because , as you know, seagulls are very large. Then, looking through binoculars, I could tell it was a snowy and a big one at that. It's the largest snowy I've ever seen by far.
She only stayed a couple of days and then disappeared only to return this past weekend. Where did she go for those 5 weeks? I don't know but I'm sure glad to have her back. She's so photogenic that I continued to go back there Sunday and Monday too with success on finding her. My favorite snowy owl by far. For now, until I can come up with a better name, I'm going to call her "The Queen of Sheba"

Photographer Larry Blau got a bit of surprise when he leaned over the ship’s side and got his morning shower care of a humpback whale. They sometimes come along side of ships or breach, perhaps for a better look at what’s on the surface, and giving us a better look, too! Other whale species, blue, minke, orca and more can be found in the Antarctic, but the humpback is the most plentiful. These giants come to feed on tiny krill, plankton and small fish. http://ow.ly/IYfT50Gs49v

In Native American cultures, the Eastern Bluebird symbolizes hope, love, and renewal, which is how I feel when I see one. Eastern Bluebirds like grasslands, and that is precisely where this one lives in the Washington County Grasslands in Fort Edward, New York. It is where I saw my very first Eastern Bluebird sitting on the fence post along a quiet road. I will never forget how excited I was – that little bird did indeed give me hope and renewal – and joy!

Plains Zebra in Kruger National Park. There are three species of zebra – can you tell them apart? Look at the stripes. See how the stripes encircle their bellies? That’s a first sign of the Plains Zebra. They also have “shadow” lines between the black strips. Mountain zebras have white bellies and with Grevey’s zebra look for thin, delicate strips, white belly and BIG round ears!

Carolina Wren will probably stay the winter, but they are sensitive to cold – when the weather is severe, many of them do not make it to spring. Suet-type feeders and nest boxes help, especially those with entry slots rather than holes; putting some dried grass in it helps keep them warm and safe. This one lives in Fort Edward, New York.
