Beautiful bird Owl stretching after it woke up to freezing temperatures of -20C in Montreal, Canada. Yves Adams said: ‘I had seen the owl hunting in the area for a few days, so I tried to follow him, as he’d obviously found a good spot.

‘I have a lot of respect for these northern birds. I was able to retreat to my warm hotel room each night, but this bird had to stay out all night, often with strong blizzards at night, with very low temperatures.’
