Snowy Owl, Norton Point, Mass.
Temps warmed to a balmy 20 degrees F. I hiked across three miles of frozen sand dunes and beaches for the shot. I mention this as I had a 7D and a 100-400mm and they worked like a charm in the cold.

Song Sparrow in a lobster trap. Some photographers use feeders for bird shots, thought I would try something different.

My favorite raptor !  Also a great example of 7D Mk2 and 100-400 mk2 with extender. Was the shot handheld ?

Look familiar ?

Menemsha harbor, on Martha's Vineyard.  The harbor Quint ( Robert Shaw ) had his shark shack and boat moored in the original movie Jaws.
