The first snowy I`ve seen this winter and I suspect it is one that resided in this area last winter, too. He was perched on this windmill two nights ago when I got some moon shots with the windmill.. not realizing he was even there until I downloaded my pictures. I returned today with high hopes of seeing him again and, for once, my hopes were not dashed :)

    Someone is staring at you !!! Can't know for sure, but I think you are disturbing his view. Excellent shot.

    Thank you for your comments, they are so appreciated! .. and yes Gloria, his eyes were really honing in on me as I stood on the highway trying to get a decent long shot, it`s a long way up to where he was perched.

    No. 1, I can't do birds with my camera. No. 2 - a superb snowy. What a thrill!
