Snowy Owl and her late afternoon lunch

This female Snowy Owl spent the winter of 2010 with us here in Wisconsin. Many who knew of her whereabouts came to watch her, and view her beauty. Many also made captures ( photographs ) of her while she was here.Snowy Owls rarely visit our fine state, and although there were reported sightings of two in Wisconsin this past winter, I am not aware of any one getting a photograph of one. This shot for me happened because I was in the right place at the right time. It may be my once in a life time capture of a Snowy Owl caught in such a pose. For those who still wish to know, I did not bait this owl, nor did I know the women who placed this mouse. I just happened to be one of many who was there and took advantage of this once in a life time opportunity. Before you judge me, please take a look at my other captures.
