Bear Cub

This small black bear cub kept running up the dead tree as his mother and sister fiahed for salmon below in the creek

Sunset Stretch

Patience is key. The Geese were initially very wary of me, but after sitting with them for a while, they began to feel more comfortable with me, just as the sun was setting and emitting an orange hue.

Shake!

People often ask me, “Why look through a viewfinder when you can look with your own eyes?” The answer is simple. You’re freezing a moment in time, while time itself moves on, and the moment disappears. As a result, capturing moments that are too fast for the human eye. If I hadn’t looked in my viewfinder, I wouldn’t have been able to capture this split-second moment, and it would be gone forever. If this isn’t action, then I don’t know what is!

Snowstorm Squirrel

As fall was coming to a close, the temperature was dropping, and the snow was falling, this Squirrel was fattening up on the fallen bird seed from my bird feeder. By army crawling in the snow, I was able to approach her quite close, resulting in this portrait. Out of all the photos I took, this one ended up being my favourite because of the look of curious look on her face.

Photo op with red squirrel

I was walking the Trans-Canada GREEN ROUTE. Half way between Sherbrooke and North-Hatley is a rest area for bikers. 2 picknick tables and a waste bin next to the Massawipi river. The light was good and the little fellow seems willing to give me some good shots. Most likely racoons opens the lid at night but the squirel sure made a check run for anything he would be interested in.

Photo op with red squirrel

Barely a minute in the shooting the little red squirrel had enough. Unfortunately you can't see the motion but he is waving its paw, like saying - Go Home-, -Get Lost- or -Peanuts please!-. He was very cute doing that.

Photo op with red squirrel

Seeing I was not leaving the scene, the red squirrel decided to quit and jumped from the waste bin to the next tree trunk. He gave me a long expressive last look and climbed the tree faster than a bullet. Lost him in the dense canopy but I sure keep souvenir of the cute little guy.

Finding Lunch

I was visiting a local park when I began watching these Canada Goose Goslings. One was intrigued when the other one discovered a worm. Very cute.
