Josh Blash captured this shot early on a mid-January, 2015 morning – at the harbor in Rye, New Hampshire. Doesn’t that owl look chilly? Josh wrote:
I went out to see a cold sunrise this morning at the harbor. While I was out, I saw this snowy owl enjoying the cold, but it wasn’t long before it spread its wings and launched into flight. In the background is sea smoke over the ocean and the Isles of Shoals.
Thank you, Josh!
