The Snowy Owl, the spirit of the endless Northern white plains. Often invisible to the human eye in such landscapes, they possess the perfect camouflage to hunt their prey. This scene illustrates an individual that has just captured a vole, with the evening sky that paints the snow pink.
The proceeds of this artwork will go to Project Snowstorm, a young crowdfunding charity project that is very research focused, with a goal to collect population ecology data and raise awareness about potential impacts on the species from climate change and human activity. They have advanced GPS transmitter technology to map out the movement patterns of these owls to ultimately understand areas of their behavior that are still unknown.
