Camera Critters

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.
