A Snowy Owl hunts along the beach on Assateague Island, Maryland (1/17/2009). These lucky photos were not acquired by approaching the bird, but were snapped by luck when the bird flew past us and out over the ocean as we drove back. We snapped a few photos of the gorgeous creature before leaving it to it's dinner arrangements.
