Snowy Owl 004
She was content to pose for me as long as I remained in the car. Two things made her flush. When I tried to set the tripod up outside the car she instantly flew to the next telephone pole. The second was when I looked out my back window and caught the glimpse of red and blue flashing lights. One of the Lake County Deputies saw something that he thought suspicious; a strange person with a huge lens taking pictures of the mining plant. Fortunately the deputy called in my license plate and waited for the information before walking up to my car. During those few minutes I was able to get my photos. As soon as he walked up to the car, the owl flushed. My best photo was captured when the owl was eyeing the approaching deputy.
