MONTREAL – A traffic camera in Montreal’s West Island captured a stunning image Sunday of a snowy owl taking to the air.

The bird was caught in mid-flight approaching the camera with an intense gaze along Highway 40, just off Sources Boulevard.

The photos were posted by Quebec Transport Minister Robert Poëti on Facebook.

“An impressive traveller captured in full flight,” he wrote.
