Another Owl, this time a Snowy Owl. Many thanks for all the kind comments and clicks on my last upload and all previous ones.
It's very wet and blowing a gale here, I hope you are having better weather where you are.
Best wishes and have a great week,
Steve.

Very nice bird portrait. Interesting reflection in the bright eye! Weather here is pretty ghastly too. Stand still and you'd be blown off your feet, I reckon!
