One week ago I posted some pics of swans in flight; I said that I was practicing so that when I finally found a Great Gray Owl, I would be prepared to photograph him in flight... I'm glad I did. Here he is on his way to kill a vole. Keep in mind that the vole is under at least a foot of snow and he can't see the critter. He can hear it though...  He plunges deep into the snow to get the vole. Then he proceeds to eat it right in front of me. Wanna see pictures of that? I got em.
