Image of the Month

 

Great Grey Owl November 2012 

 

November 2012

I have tried for many years to Photograph this majestic Owl of the northern forests and I have failed on many occasions. I went to Finland this winter for three weeks to try and secure images of this beautiful bird for my new book "The Long Journey North". After this trip I had failed again and so was looking at the prospect of not including it in the book. This was like not including images of Polar Bears or European Wolves as I saw it as such an important species of the frozen north. When I got back the Owls started to show themselves after the long winter and so I made the decision to head back and try and photograph them. I am so glad I did as it has been one of the best experiences that I have done.
