This image is very special for me. It is an image of a Snowy Owl lifting off from it's roosting spot in a snow covered field in Northern Quebec. I really liked the wing position and the falling snow around the talons.

    Spectacular! You captured so much detail: black talons, black pin feathers around it's head, the snow falling back to ground, and the eye!
