Great Grey Owl in the Ground de Heikkinen Liina de KOUVOLA ()
Lugar: Nastola, Finland
Descripción: For many years Great Grey Owls migrate from Northern Finland to Southern Finland. Their migration is related to the prevailing situation of small rodents. The lower the owls, is the food, the farther the owls migrate. I think, that the Great Grey Owl is a very beautiful bird. Owl has big eyes and a very mystical look. I have often dreamed to take good pictures of Great Grey Owl. Such an opportunity was arranged for me winter 2013. In this case, The Owls have a great migration. In Northern Finland there was very bad food situation. In Southern Finland had plenty of food. The Owls came into sight of the people and they prey during the day. The Owl often sat in the big tree near field. From there, Owl looked at and listened to the sounds of voles and mice. Silently the Owl flew on the right place. The Owl hovered silently in same place and listened. When the Owl located it´s prey it dived very quickly. Then the Owl hit a mole or a mouse under the snow with it´s strong feet.
In this picture the Great Grey Owl sitting on the snow. It has a dead mouse it´s feets. The Owl´s eye-catching is very mystical. I think, that the black and white is very ideal for this picture and situation. I took many pictures in this wonderful case. I am very happy with this picture. It is the one, which I have always dreamed of.
