More Snowy Owls - Boundary Bay

Last week's owl posting proved popular so I'm treating you again. More pictures of the Snowy Owls at the dikes on Boundary Bay at Delta, BC,  a week-and-a-half ago. An experience I'll not soon forget.

What a treat to be able to photograph so many! The first two pictures are of the same bird, so five birds here, and I still have more. These owls may be there another month and more before they've all gone back north, so if you have a chance to see them, don't pass it by.
I'm mildly surprised by the number of Google searchers that have found last week's owl post, so hopefully this post pleases a lot of folks!

And don't forget, "clicking" on the pictures makes them bigger.

For the record, these were taken with an Olympus E-5 with a 300mm f/2.8 lens plus 2x teleconverter, ie: 600mm, with tripod and gimbal, f/8, ISO 800 with shutter speeds from 1/250" to 1/400".
