Stunning Images of Snowy Owl Caught by Montreal Traffic Camera

A stunning picture of a snowy owl in flight was taken by a traffic camera.

On January 3, a CCTV camera on Highway 40 in Montreal’s West Island took a series of pictures like the one above.

The Quebec Minister of Transportation, Robert Poetin, then posted the photos on Twitter with the caption “Magnificent snowy owl caught by road network surveillance cameras on the A-40 west of Montreal.”

The snowy owl is the official symbol of Quebec. Hunters are not allowed to kill them in Canada, but sometimes they get hit by cars, planes, or power lines.

Owls are a sign of higher intelligence.
