Just getting ready to call it a shoot as the sun was just about set and a pair of snowy owls popped up for some end of day entertainment. I'm not fussy about the golden glow from the sun but it is what it is. My WB was set to Auto, would changing this make any difference on the orange glow from the sun and if so what would likely be a good setting to try in the future.

Nice interaction and timing, catching them both in focus.

Great behavior and action frame, Paul. Two Snowys in action is something we don’t see often.

Wonderful interaction. Don't know about WB in-camera, but if you have post-processing like Photoshop or Lightroom, you could probably improve the color. I think trying to change the camera setting while capturing a unique, fast moving moment sometimes means losing the shot.
