One of three frames of a snowy owl in majestic flight captured on January 3rd by a traffic camera on Highway 40 in Montreal, Canada.
The story originally ran in Haaretz, where the framing wasn’t quite so odious.
A shot taken at the World Bird Sanctuary in Missouri by photographer Lisa Kee, who swears it’s not ‘shopped. Sez she:
‘Minerva’ was turning her head from side to side quite intrigued with the noise from my camera and then just flipped it upside down. I have watched birds of prey turn their heads all different ways but to see one completely upside down like this was a first. I had to double check my camera to see it actually happened.
God damn but that’s one lovely owl.
