Iqaluit, Nunavut - Here is a snowy owlet sitting on top of a ridge on the Arctic tundra.
After riding my ATV through difficult terrain for a few hours and hiking up and down through valleys and hills for a few more hours, I finally arrived at the place where I first discover the small owlets. However, these little guys grow fast and had moved. I was almost ready to head back to town when I saw one at my foot and the other one was nearby. I backed away so as not to disturb them and spent another hour photographing them. Today I earned my shots.
