So I got a message from my good friends at a Place Called Hope that they would be releasing a female Juvenile Snowy Owl today and I was on the guest list... WHOOOHOOO!!!
I didn't have much time to get set for the release and the light was harsh so I missed it but I ended up with these...

And away she went. They were worried that she hadn't flown in a few weeks, but she did just fine! I came accross her quite awhile later where she was getting dive bombed by seagulls..

4 Caught her taking off

What a beautiful bird! Which of course I'd never get to say if it weren't for the beautiful pictures :)

Kris, you are one lucky guy. That #4, in flight, is just great.

My god.

I swear owls are hands-down the most awesome creatures on the planet.

Some beautiful shots but it must have been an amazing experience. Thanks for sharing.
