Although it was still cold, today's sunshine was a treat. This snowy owl preened the whole time I observed it.

A quick bite, a bit of shelter and then back into the snow for this little chickadee.

I spent the better part of this afternoon waiting in a freezing field, but this snowy owl finally rewarded me with a chance to catch it in flight! Taken on Poplar Sideroad in Collingwood.
