Snowy Owls

Much better sight lines for these guys, too.
The eyebrow effect from the remaining black feathers perhaps over-does the cuteness in this case.
Whereas this particular expression comes across as "oh, but how I wish you were a lemming".
I'm kinda looking forward to some winter shots; snowy owls look better on snow, after all, and the white balance nightmare will be good for me.

Completely reasonable reaction. :)

Especially since, given the size and nigh-all-white plumage, that is an older male snowy owl. :)
