Instead of dreary cars and gray tarmac, a traffic camera in Montreal, Canada caught a glimpse of something a bit more unusual, and strikingly beautiful.
On the morning of January 3, a snowy owl was snapped by a traffic camera on an intersection of Autoroute 40 and the Boulevard des Sources, in the West Island of Montreal.
The video below, which has gone viral since being uploaded to Youtube, shows the amazing moment the majestic creature crosses in front of the camera, giving us a rare glimpse of its beauty.
It is believed the owl, which appears to be making eye contact with the camera, was actually scouting out a place to perch on top of the webcam.
