Originally uploaded by kevinbolton56

Hello all.

Now that the New Year is upon us, my resolution list is small but to the point.
#1 I will get in more hours of Photography within a day.
#2 Be more patient and no melt downs when my capture takes off before releasing the shutter! #$*@#
#3 If I take 300 captures I will make a goal to have at least 100 to be keepers.
#4 Stop shooting on extreme overcast days and work on better Sun angles

Short and Sweet!

My Grail Bird to Digiscope in the Raptor world would be the Snowy Owl , here in Jersey they seem to be popping up every were!
This capture was taken at DeKorte park in the Hackensack Meadowlands ,I was just happy to get a decent capture of one.

Though a little closer would have been nice I cant complain JESUS ITS A SNOWY OWL!!!!

Happy New year.
