I frequently stroll the streets of Wanamassa, NJ, with camera at the ready to take pictures of birds.

Another Year, a New Camera, a Snowy Owl

My family treated me to a new K-3 as a combined birthday, Christmas and retirement present. It is a major step up from the Kx which was already a pretty impressive camera. The year started with a surprising visitor to Allenhurst on January 1st. I was at Ruby Tuesday's in Freehold Raceway Mall about to have lunch when I got a text message from Joy More letting me know that a Snowy Owl had been sighted on a rooftop by the ocean. It was four o'clock before I got there but the bird was still on the roof. It could be seen only from one angle that required I stand in the middle of the road to get these two shots.

This was my second sighting of a Snowy Owl having seen two on a recent visit to Brigantine. One of them was on the rocks by the Wildlife Drive. Here's one of the pictures I took then:
