I watched this snowy owl make grand swoops over a rural 'block' in Clearview Township. I followed her from concession to sideroad and back again. She appeared to be slowing down over the utility poles on the sideroad, so finally I parked there and waited. I caught her coming in for a landing. I was excited, frozen and blown to bits so my focus was off. Still, it will always remind me of the thrill of the moment!
