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 wonders

Our winter visitors are arriving looking for food.These amazing snowy owls hunt day & night. When their food source in the north country depletes they head south in search for a good food source. Rodents,rabbits ducks etc. are some of what they seek. Please do not approach these owls but view and admire from a distance and use a good zoom. Everything these days has good opportunity for getting a great shot. Here I used my 150 -500 mm lens but I have also cropped these photos. I do not give locations of any owls.The following is a quote from a local conservation officer!!

“We are privileged to be able to see these northern owls every few years. People need to recognize that they are here because of lack of food in their normal habitat, so any harassment of them could have a serious impact on their survival. It is for that reason that the Fish & Wildlife Conservation Act included this kind of activity in the definition of hunting, making it an offense. Therefore a person repeatedly following or disturbing a bird of prey for the purpose of getting a great photo, could very easily be illegal “hunting” that owl if it is determined that they are harassing it in the process. A charge could result under the Fish & Wildlife Conservation Act.”

 Below were more of my favorite animals I love to see in winter snow. Again these are shot off the side of the road back into a field. Respect and enjoy our wildlife.

North Country

Back in October was in the Sudbury area with a friend and the scenery was so wonderful. Not a lot of fall colors left. But what there was made it just a splash of color for the photos. Very quiet and peaceful.

Summer bears

A friend Cori & I did a few trips up north this summer. Starting in Haliburton at a dump we heard we could see bears. Oh boy we saw bears. Big bears.Probably a dozen.5 that we could see and more that we heard over the hill. Saw the garbage flying and the dust with it. Quite the experience. Then we were so lucky to see many mom's and babes in Algonquin Park area. It just seems the bugs were so bad this year and blueberries so plentiful. A lot of people were lucky to get a glimpse.In the 20 years I have done this . I have seen 4 bears. On the run or way in a distance. No photos. It was totally amazing this summer. 17 bears at least and great photos. But safety and respect #1.
