Fun in the snow

Fun in the snow
Ha, when I opened this photo this morning, I can see why I had never posted it before - too blurry for my liking! Taken at the Calgary Zoo on 16 April 2013. Not sure which two tigers these are - maybe Mom and one of her three cubs? Born on March 30, 20…

Another shot of the beautiful Great Gray Owl that some of us saw at Griffith Woods, in hunting mode. I was lucky enough to see it on 10 January 2014 and again in February. Normally, we don't get Great Gray Owls in Calgary, so this was such a treat. I ha…

Columbine

Columbine
Taken at the Reader Rock Garden in Calgary on 26 July 2013. Managed to find a pretty perfect flower to photograph : ) Such a joy to see, as the city and province had been devastated by the Alberta Flood of the Century just over a month before my visit t…

Enjoying the sun

Enjoying the sun
This Swainson's Hawk was hanging around a farm when I went for a drive SW of the city, on 26 June 2013. I'd noticed it in the area previously, but never close enough for a photo. Wish the sun was shining that brightly today, instead of the totally overca…

A photo from deep within my archives, taken on 14 July 2009. After yesterday's unwelcome snowfall, we need colour. Red would have been better, but I happened to come across this photo late last night, when I was browsing some files. I solved the most f…

Spring is here.jpg
Happy SPRING, everyone! I wanted a colourful image to post today, in contrast with my main photo, which shows a winter scene that would more accurately describe today, the first day of spring. Taken at the Calgary Zoo on 9 April 2013, I noticed this mal…

The oldest owlet

The oldest owlet
I hadn't been downtown for many years, but two days ago (16 March 2014), I had the chance to meet several friends for a birding walk at Pearce Estate, along the Bow River. After the walk, we carpooled to nearby downtown, hoping to find the Great Horned O…

Elk at a Ranch

Elk at a Ranch
Even though these majestic Elk are raised at the Canadian Rocky Mountain Ranch, along with Buffalo/Bison, it's amazing to see them on the rolling hills SW of Calgary. Taken on 24 June 2013. I did think of "removing" their ear tags, but I was just too ti…

Grain elevator, Blackie, Alberta

Grain elevator, Blackie, Alberta
When I was on a birding day trip with a group of friends, going SE of Calgary on Saturday, 15 March 2014, we called in at the small hamlet of Blackie. I had been there with other friends two days earlier and I had spotted a couple of very distant Eurasia…
