Great Grey Owl Courtship
The Telegraph recently featured several fantastic photos by Christopher Dodds of Great Grey Owls during a courtship ritual. Wish I could have been there!
Christopher took the photos near Bracebridge, Ontario, Canada after waiting for several hours crouched in the snow. Well, I definitely think his patience paid off!
In the Telegraph, Christopher says:
I have shot many birds in different environments but this is one of my favorite moments.
I have to agree!
Christopher is freelance nature photographer, lecturer and teacher who specializes in birds.
From Chris’s bio:
Chris first discovered his love of the great Canadian outdoors during family and boy scout camping, and canoe and backpacking trips, after moving to Canada from England when he was eight. By the time he was fourteen, Chris thrilled at freezing fleeting glimpses of birds and the resulting ability to study every detail of their intricate beauty. Chris’ passion for photography has taken several paths through the years; photojournalism, studio portraiture, commercial and wedding photography to name just a few. He apprenticed in colour and black and white chemical darkrooms, but today embraces the computerized, digital workflow. Chris is passionate about capturing images of nature in an artistic, yet technically perfect, manner.
