A snowy owl's wings frame the moon.

Last week, I wrote about the unprecedented migration of snowy owls known as an irruption. This winter, the owls have traveled much father south than their usual habitat in the arctic circle. The photographer didn't share where she took this shot, but it reminded me that the irruption has given bird watchers in southern Canada and the eastern United States a rare opportunity to glimpse these beautiful birds of prey.
