These are the conditions faced by myself and my friend Steve Courson (pictured above) when photographing Snowy Owls this year. Frigid north winds (-15 degrees), blowing snow, poor visiblily, white bird in white conditions.

I spend a lot of time photographing with my friend Steve Courson. On this particular day, we were documenting a nesting colony of Great Blue Herons. When visiting this particular nesting site, we wear camoflaged clothing so as not to disturb the birds. Camo works - the birds seem rather oblivious to our presence (yes, there are two photographers in this picture). Since camo umbrellas are not available, we are careful when looking up!@!
