I think this ranks amongst the all time great wildlife shots. For WJ Gibson, I think he is definitely after a small mammal that is moving around in the vegetation under the blanket of snow. He locates these through the snow using his 'ears'. If you look very carefully at his head - the left hand side (as you look at it) is higher than the right where his ears are displaced relative to each other which helps the accuracy of locating the source noise. Barn Owls are similarly asymmetrical in the UK and also hunt, at night or in low light conditions, by sound. Just one of the details that makes this a great shot.

Amazing detail and color, looks as if the bird is coming out of water!

Well.......... ........ I'm a birdwatcher & owls are probably my favourite bird. That aside, this is a beautiful picture that captures the moment of it swooping on it's prey.

Great shot .well done.

Great Gray Owl It's amazing how he looks angry just because his head is tilted forwards.
