It was a very windy day, especially at the top of this power pole, and his feathers were getting quite ruffled.
We seem to meet this way quite often so I decided to put this shot into the meet-up theme :)

    This awesome bird photo is wonderful for the theme! I have really enjoyed your photos of this beautiful bird Heather. You should do an essay on your great bird photos and include him in the collection!

    This is more than awesome Heather....Your snowy owls seem to be aware of you and intuitively know that you have a great respect for them as they do of you...

    Thanks again for your comments and favs!! .. Andrea, this particular owl seems especially patient with me and never flies off, but the owl I saw down the road from him was a different story. It seems to be a younger bird and kept flying away to another power pole.. so I`m quite sure this one was here last winter, too.. he looks quite familiar. Thanks so much for your comment and for the nomination.
