Love these guys! I’ve only seen one once in their winter colors. Great capture of detail in the white and nice comp. I can’t tell for sures on iPad, but focus may be a bit soft on eyes/head.

Edit: Sorry about prior comments about focus. Looks fine on desktop. iPad tends to be a bit deceiving when the screen is magnified.

Super capture! What a great open view you got. Super exposure to capture such great detail in the whites!

Living in Australia I have never seen one of these in the wild. What a great capture.

Beautiful capture of this beauty in its winter coat, Paul. Excellent detail from nose to tail and such a lovely alert pose. Well done!

Outstanding image of this cutie. Looks sharp on my laptop. Great control of the whites. Pose is super. I have never seen one of these in the wild. Thanks for sharing.

Paul, what a delight to view - superb full-length pose, angling up perfectly on on that interesting promontory.  Gorgeous creature, wonderfully captured!

In my experience, seeing the whole animal is truly amazing. Usually get just a glimpse of the head or the tail!
Great shot, with a wonderful pose ; well done Paul.
