A little closer to home, I found this snowy owl in my original search area, not far from the Collingwood Airport.
After intermittent snow squalls the sky cleared briefly, just in time for the sun to set.
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!
