I decided to try one more time to get close to the rare great grey owl before they left the Ottawa area. It was an absolutely gorgeous warm spring-like day with no snow storm in the forecast until later that evening. Four of us headed out to the fields. We ran into a couple other photographers who had already been there for awhile and hadn’t spotted anything. We hiked through the deep snow down to the river only to find TWO owls within a few yards of each other. Our lucky day!!!! Four hours and hundreds of shots later….here are a few of my favs. Check out the rest in the nature photos.
