Snowy owl with wild cottontail rabbit in talons. I spent almost 200 hours photographing a number of snowy owls during the winter of 2004. This one learned to hunt wild rabbits in the dunes of Fire Is, NY seashore, and would allow close approach if I belly crawled and took my time (often 2 hrs). It was a winter I and many others will never forget.
