We were enduring a scary drive home in the freezing rain today when an incredible thing happened — this beautiful Snowy Owl posed for us! We were driving through cleared farmland, so there was nothing nearby to give perspective. This is a very large bird. Wide wing span. Yet when he took off, flying low over the snowy fields, he disappeared from sight almost immediately. Stopping to watch him provided a lovely few minutes to relieve our stress from the slipping and sliding we’d been through on our way home from town.
