Took Dusty (my dog) down to the lake for a walk and was not expecting to see a Snowy Owl, however to my surprise, here she was sitting on the ice in the middle of the bay.  Unfortunately I did not get a nice shot of her in flight, as when she took off, she was flying away from my vantage point.  I however did get a backend shot of her, which was not so appealing.  I would expect that they will all be heading north very soon, so I was very happy to get one more opportunity to observe these beautiful owls.
