Snowy owl Stayner Ontario

(Stayner, Ontario, Canada)
My husband and I decided to drive a different way home a couple of weeks ago from Angus to Stayner, Ontario.
What a treat to find a huge Snowy Owl sat on the snow-plow banks at the side of the road - I was able to capture him on video.
I returned for a two week holiday to UK and during this time my husband was driving to work and the Owl flew for about 300 m along the road beside his car - sadly he didn't have a camera.
Today 19th March I was driving along Centre Line, Stayner, looking out for the Snowy Owl - camera on passenger seat of the car.
I was so happy to spot him sitting on top of a telegraph pole and stayed long enough for me to take a couple of photos of him. What a treat.
I wonder how long he will stay around - but he's a huge bird and beautiful to watch in flight.
