Snowy Watchmen by Raymaker Snowy Watchmen by Raymaker
A snowy owl surveys the landscape, waiting for nightfall to begin its hunt. During irruption years such as this, snowy owls migrate far south of their normal winter feeding grounds, looking for less competition and more food - Boundary Bay, British Columbia, Canada

Really neat shot! That's a cool looking log there with all that twisted wood. The owl's pose is great as well. :)
