Look at the determination in his eyes!
Studies in controlled circumstances determined that barn owls were able to leave their perch and capture mice a significant distance away in complete darkness, by sound alone. Foxes hunt by the sound of critters beneath the snow; it's not unreasonable to assume owls do too. If you're gonna live where your dinner is hidden under a white blanket, you have to develop compensatory techniques.
Fantastic photo, scary but wonderful.
Am amazed at the concentration on the owl's face. Wow, would hate to be the dinner he's going after.
TEX IS BACK!
What a find this one is, Dave! Thanks to both you and David Hemmings.
Congrats to Mr. Hemmings on such outstanding photo! WOW!And thank you Dave for posting it, it is very much appreciated :)))))
Look at those claws ready to grab whatever critter is under the snow! Amazing capture by Mr. Hemmings!
David Hemmings is a well known bird photographer but to have caught this precise moment of the flow of nature playing out is truly amazing, Putter!
They have fantastic hearing and probably did hear a little critter under there. What a beautiful shot. Thanks for giving me a dose of OWL this morning!
