Every now and again, the photography gods smile on you - this was one of those times. While out birding in Michigan's Upper Peninsula with my husband Al and son Chris, we were engulfed in a lake effect snow storm complete with 30 mph winds adding to the challenges of photographing a wary subject. After spotting this female Snowy on a fence post, she flew across a field, landing at the maximum range of my lens. Sideways snow, a white subject in a white-out and yet, somehow, the shutter tripped in mid-wingbeat.
