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.

winter owl

Snowy owls are one of the most beautiful winter owls you will see next to the great grey. However please remember. The reason they are here is because their food source up north is depleted. Meaning they arive in our areas VERY HUNGRY OR EVEN STARVING. Hunting is critical for them for survival. Places like Toronto Wildlife Center and the Owl Foundation have already rehabed and are rehabing many owls,snowies,barred etc. By all means if you are fortunate enough to see one. Enjoy it,photograph it,BUT. give it it's much needed space. DO NOT follow it,chase it or get to close to it. And also respect no tresspassing signs on peoples property,very important. Proper equipment will get you great shots. Today we are lucky in that we can do so much to achieve a good photo. The important thing with wildlife photography is to respect the species you are photographing. And teach others to do the same. It may take years to get the shot you want. But knowing that the species is safe and able to hunt safely to survive,well that is a reward in itself.Also I do not give out the location of owls I see in order to protect them. Just enjoy and put them and their safetly first. Today Ann & I were very lucky in that we saw 3 snowies. After going for a drive and coming back again a couple hours later we were rewarded with this. One of our beauties was out and easy to photograph. Love the pattern on the back of her head,very pretty indeed. Our patience had as always paid off.
