l have been a part of a few successful wildlife rescues and educate people on wildlife and environmental issues. We have helped in issues to save wetlands, woodlands etc.to save the precious life within. It is well worth the effort. We can all learn to live and work together. Education is the key. In 2011 I won an education award from Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority for the work and photography I do. Habitat is fast disappearing and with it, many species are also declining in numbers. So many species can actually tell us the health of our environment and alert us to problems we need to know about. They all need to be protected.

Amherst Island

If you want to go on a great tour and meet some very nice people with the same interests as you. Have fun and see some great things,Murray is the guy to contact. His contact info below:


I know he has some great tours coming up. I have been to Algonquin with him, had a lot of fun that day and this trip was to Amherst Island. You always meet interesting fun people. A great way to spend the day. See some terrific places,scenery and wildlife.And you can just sit back ,relax and let the driver take you there. Comeback with new friends and memories. Followed by a good nights sleep as you get home and fall into bed thinking about the days events. A really good kind of tired. The following are some shots I took on Amherst Island. A beautiful,very friendly island with lots to see. For you knitters there is a little wool shop run by a sheep farm. A small museum and a one of a kind radio station. Of coarse it is all seasonal.A very beautiful island. Guaranteed.

The first few shots are of a long eared owl. A beautiful owl that is quite hard to see in those tall pine trees. Tall & slender almost looks like part of the tree.The next little owl is a saw whet owl. But please remember that you must not get to close to these owls and that you must respect them in every way. I have seen horrible things done around owls every where that should never have happened. You must not get caught up in the moment. And there is no such thing as that "perfect picture". These shots and all my shots are taken with a 150-500 mm lens and even then they are cropped. A life must never be put at risk for our enjoyment. But protected for our future and theirs. Don't loose sight of what is important here and teach others the same. Never give exact locations. If you find an owl it is always by chance. Enjoy it and move on. Keep it to yourself. Respect our wildlife,it's habitat and it's privacy and also private property. We can co-exist.!
