Description

A duo of quite unexpected visitors made their way to the NC Outer Banks during the winter of 2013-2014. Much to the delight of southern bird enthusiasts, but confounding the experts, here is one of TWO snowy owls who took up residence on Ocracoke Island for that winter period. The dune and beach environment made for some nice photo settings, and I liked this one among the grasses, with flower-shaped leaves in the brush which really provided a great accent in the b/w conversion.
