Please tell me this is a tame owl and not negative 28 before I become more jealous. My Friend loves talking photos in these conditions... not easy.

This one gets it! It is unique. The background enhances the subject. The V shape of the wingspan is eye catching. Very good work.

Behind The Lens

Close to my home in Saint-Hyacinthe, Québec, Canada
I wake up early in the morning and look outside, It was one of these real winter day. -28 C and the wind was piking up fresh snow from the ground. Stormy condition!
The sun was shinning, but the wind and the snow were creating a foggy condition. Did not like it at first. but after a few shot WOW!
I used my bird equipments, Canon 7D mark II and my Cannon 500 mm lens on a tripod.
Every winter i do a lot of exploring in the farm lands. I created a routine schedule to visit the snowy owls. But this particular morning, because of bad weater condition, i decided to stay at the male snowy owl area. when i sit in the middle of the field long enough, he will come to see me and fly by and than leave. I waited about a hour, i was about to leave....surprise he was on the snow bank by the road. Couples of minute later he toke off and landed close to me. the wind was to strong he could only fly show distance. GREAT!!!
I had to retouche the eyes because of the foggy condition!
In my camera bag
Two camera Canon 7D and a 5D, two Canon lens 500mm, 100/400 mm.
Lot of exploring and patience. i spent more time trying to find the owls than photographing
