Florian Schulz spent 72 hours in a blind in Alaska's National Petroleum Reserve to take this gorgeous snowy owl family portrait. Both parents are extremely protective of their clutch of chicks (typically 3 to 11, depending on the food supply) and will dive-bomb predators. Here the male delivers an unlucky lemming, which the brown-specked female will tear into small bits and feed to the brood.
