That's a gorgeous snowy owl! Did you take that picture personally, or is that from a gallery somewhere online?

Thanks, Robbie. I took that picture at the Artis Zoo in Amsterdam last February.

Great picture.
I once got very close to one of the large owls(great horned?) while it was hunting. Majestic, scary and absolutely silent wish I had a picture.

Wow - good shot! I followed the link, and the female snowy owl is a wonderful bird, too. I kind of wish you'd gotten a close-up of her, too - then I'd have 2 great wallpapers for my desktop ;)

I'm always pleased when people put up my pictures as desktop wallpaper. It's a good feeling to have my work become part of other people's workspaces, if that makes any sense.

But... but where's the beak? It needs a beak, doesn't it? Is it just hidden under the feathers? I don't get it!

Oh, and the Brooks column was rather odd.

That's a gorgeous photo. I'm really glad to read that you're happy when people (and Dogs?) use your photos for their computer desktops -- I'm going to start with the subway mural shot, me.

With kind regards,
Dog, etc.
dog knows i tried

It is hidden under feathers, like everything else on the snowy owl except its eyes. It gets cold up in the arctic, after all. They're one big pile of fluffyness - granted, a pile of fluffyness that could rip your throat out, but quite cuddly for all that.
