Strokes of great silvery wings carry the snowy owl over the boundless landscape. It is a gorgeous bird, native to Canada’s Arctic regions. One can easily recognize it by that piercing amber stare, fluffy chest and, most notably, a thick coat of snow-white feathers. As charming as this bird may be, the snowy owl is also a fearsome hunter, preying mainly on rodents and waterfowl. Down below, a duo of greater white-fronted geese unsuspectingly glides across peaceful waters. It seems as though they were accompanied by nothing more than the ripples of their reflection. However, the predator is streaking from above.
