Basking in the sun

wpid-Snowy-Owl-Basking-in-the-winter-sun.jpgThis past weekend I was able to break out to Ocean Shores. While the South Puget Sound Basin was covered by a grey soup of fog, the Pacific Coast was bright and clear. The attraction at Ocean Shores at this time of year is the presence of Snowy Owls. This beautiful male was soaking up the sun as the shutters of several hundred tourists, like myself, captured his moment. The birds will be in the area through February.
