Visitor from the Tundra

Snowy owls are visiting the US in large numbers this year.
We found this one in a field outside Grass Lake, MI.
After sitting for a while, the owl flew up in the air, showing its magnificent white wings
against the dark trees. I found it rather thrilling! But we didn't get a photo of it flying.
From the car, I watched Len taking the top photo.
Definitely a relative of Harry Potter's Hedwig.

OK, when I first saw this photo as a thumbnail on FB, I thought it was a snowman peeking out over a big drift! Fooled me! I think an owl sighting would be much better!
