In late fall snowy owls leave the Arctic and move south where they spend the winter. I spent a week in Quebec at a place where snowy owls had been seen earlier. I was very fortunate that the young male owl was still in the area when I arrived. It was used to people as the area was covered with small farms. One day I was extremely lucky when a snowstorm caused whiteout conditions and the owl came flying towards me like a ghost. The only color in the picture, the yellow eyes, stand in stark contrast to the monochrome surrounding. A surreal moment!
