In the winter of 2013/14 there was an irruption of snowy owls and I was fortunate to spot three on the coasts of Maryland and Delaware. This shot was taken on Assateague Island, a barrier island off the Delmarva peninsula. An irruption of this size is rare, about once a century, and are a sign that food is plentiful. Those banded were found to be healthier than those banded during non-irruption seasons. Photos of the first two of the owls I spotted in Delaware aided researchers who are studying these rarely seen raptors. When birds rare to this region show up it's common to see groups of birdwatchers huddled together, but I prefer a much more intimate experience. I saw each of these while out on my own and fortunately came upon them, or they came upon me, as it seemed. Snowy Owls are one bird I was confident I'd never check off my list, but I've now seen 5!

We finally made it! The annual Assateague adventure with our Canadian and New Jersey Friends who we met on Instagram 5 years ago (at least) @tanszshotsz @sunnycrow ... fun adventures, lots of laughs and so good to see everyone. We saw so many ponies and some other awesome critters. Until next time. #assateague #assateagueisland #assateagueponies #maryland #nationalpark #nationalparks #fox #redfox #assateaguenationalseashore #wildlife #wildlifephotography #wildhorses #wildponies #assateaguehorses #wild #horse #horses #wildhorsephotography #equine #equinephotography #equinelife

Took a few days off work and went down to Assateague Island for some Wild Pony Time! Saw lots of wild ponies, but also saw this awesome guy who let us sit and watch while she hunted for her dinner 😱💗#assateague #assateagueisland #assateagueponies #maryland #nationalpark #nationalparks #fox #redfox #assateaguenationalseashore #wildlife #wildlifephotography #wildhorses #wildponies #assateaguehorses #wild #horse #horses #wildhorsephotography #equine #equinephotography #equinelife
