At sundown, photography can be challenging. At past sundown, more so. Add some snow (as in, snowing, not just on the ground), and it's pretty impossible. Oh, wait - the subject is several hundred yards away.
Short-eared owls hunting. Past sundown. As it's snowing. And they are not choosing to be super-close.
There were two birds hunting at the same time. You can see one on the ground, to the far left, and one flying to the middle/right.
