Photo: The Setting Sun

It’s been a very busy few weeks here in and about Toronto. But I wanted to share this picture that, every time I look at it, I relax a little bit and slow down.

This is in Riding Mountain National Park, Manitoba, on the last day of my two month summer trip. The same moment as the current header on my blog. Great way to end the summer!

Top 5: Otter Photos

I’ve been lucky in Yellowstone these past 2 summers, watching groups of otters doing their thing – and the shows have apparently been quite a rare thing to witness according to others.

Here are my top 5 photos of les otters from the past two summers:

Number 5

Golden light, watching these cute little dudes sleep on a fallen log over one of the most beautiful lakes I have seen (Trout Lake, Yellowstone National Park).

Number 4

Mama, eating her trout and fighting off her 2 pups. What a task. PS – some noisy tourist disrupted their flow, that’s what they are looking at!

Number 3

How waterproof does their fur look? Nice.

Number 2

Nice whiff of a fresh trout being eaten. Yum – she sure enjoyed it!

Number 1

I have a whole sequence of this – including his/her brother/sister coming to join. Unfortunately, my lens was set at manuel, and resulted in somewhat blurry photos. Ahh…there is always next year, I hope!

Fly like an Eagle (for real this time)

My last photo featuring a bird had the same title, except it was not actually an eagle. Here you go – let’s try this again.

Taken in Glacier National Park, Montana.

Photo: Moose on the Loose

In Grand Teton National Park, when I was there this summer, there were 2 very good looking bull moose that hung out in a swampy area right beside the main road in the park.

I spent hours upon hours there watching them and taking a billion photos at every angle possible. Here’s one of them in the process of standing up to go in search of some tasty tree leaves to munch on.
