We had a tornado and the Snowy Owl survived
12

Yep, a tornado touched down in parts of Ottawa on Friday. We almost never get tornados here. This violent act of nature ripped thru a small strip mall in the west end of Ottawa and pretty much destroyed it.  Large parts of the city was without hydro.

Late that same evening I went to check on the local snowy owl. With lightning flashing in the distance I found the owl perched high up drying itself off for a night of activity. Seeing that it looked fine, I quickly walked back to my car lest the lightning got worse.

Went back the next day after the storm and found the snowy owl again. This time it was in better weather conditions. The light was warm and the owl let out a BIG yawn which I captured in this photo. Thanks for looking.

7D MK2 and 500 f4 II lens with 1.4x III. Gitzo tripod as always.
