Like all of PBS' "Nature" documentaries, this was an incredible production, yet it was unique in the manner these Raptors were depicted.
The focus of this program was on a single family of Snowy Owls. They were spotted, by chance in their natural habitat, and then followed, while being carefully photographed from an undisruptive distance. It was during their most critical and dire test.... as it is to any wild species.
Endangering themselves, tending to the even more precarious survival of their offspring.
A note of caution.
Even if you thought you've seen it all, the big Mom can still throw one you won't see coming.
This magnificent portrait presents the real-life honesty of the Natural World.
It's touching tenderness...and it's cold, brutal efficiency.....can occur in shocking succession.
