This owl shows the barring they is typical of a female or young bird. While snowy owls are more commonly found in the Arctic tundra, every few years they experience an "irruption" and can be found in more southerly latitudes.
This piece was inspired by a trip to Boundary Bay, BC to see the snowy owls during an irruption year. There were about a dozen owls around the park that day, but this particular individual remained in place for quite awhile, giving me ample time to observe and photograph.
