Great Grey Owl

After leaving Varangar and Lapland we are now planning to photograph Golden Eagles just west of the Russian border. On the way we spent an afternoon photographing this beautiful and very obliging Great Grey Owl near Tornio. Although I have seen and photographed several Great Grey Owls in spring, I have never had the opportunity to photograph a hunting bird in winter. So this was a very special moment for me and one I had waited an awful long time for!
