The Great Grey Owl February 2020

Every year we are three photographers who visit the southern Småland in Sweden to photograph and get nature experiences. In February 2020, we were extremely lucky to meet The Great Grey Owl (Strix nebulosa). This big and beautiful northern owl was sitting on an iron stick at the roadside as we past it in relatively high speed. At first we thought it was a fake owl until it turned its head and looked at us with those intense yellow eyes. We all managed to get a series of portraits of the rare bird before it disappeared into the woods.
