A Morning Visit to Oak Hammock Marsh

I haven’t been to Oak Hammock Marsh for awhile, so today was the day for a return trip. I left early and was there before any other cars were in the parking lot. As a result I did not see anyone at all, but I did find some birds and a Muskrat. I was glad… Continue reading A Morning Visit to Oak Hammock Marsh

Assiniboine Park after a Temperature Drop

Luckily we did not get the extreme & dangerously high temperatures that the west coast of Canada had a few days ago, but we had temperatures in the high 30C range – up to 38C. Parts of British Columbia were in the high 40C range almost 50C. Currently a large number of wildfires are burning… Continue reading Assiniboine Park after a Temperature Drop

Walking Around Fort Whyte Alive with my Camera

It felt like ages since I’ve been to Fort Whyte Alive, but really, it has only been a couple of weeks. Walks are never the same though. I get to watch different critters/birds/reptiles/insects each time. It was a beautiful day for a walk. The heat wave which has been around for a few days was… Continue reading Walking Around Fort Whyte Alive with my Camera

A Beautiful Morning at Fort Whyte Alive

I was thinking it has been awhile since I’ve been to Fort Whyte Alive and looking back on my posts, I see it has been about 5 weeks. That IS a long time! But, it was a beautiful morning so that is where I went this morning.

A Couple of Days in Riding Mountain National Park – part 4

I had a good (but short) sleep last night and was up before dawn the next morning. I haven’t been to Grayling Lake for a sunrise photo in quite awhile, so that is where I decided to go. I then headed further north in the hopes of finding Moose around Moon Lake. First was a… Continue reading A Couple of Days in Riding Mountain National Park – part 4

An Early Walk to Avoid the Heat

It is very hot here now with temperatures in the hi 30C range. Right now it is starting to cool off and it is 35C (with a “feels like” 39C) We set a record high yesterday and today is similar, except that we are expected to end the day with a thunderstorm. I really missed… Continue reading An Early Walk to Avoid the Heat

A Morning Walk at Oak Hammock Marsh – part 2

At this point, I was almost finished with my walk through and around the marsh and was heading back to the car. I was going to drive to the north side of the property and go for another walk there. Before I left though I really wanted to get a decent photo of some birds… Continue reading A Morning Walk at Oak Hammock Marsh – part 2

A Morning Walk at Oak Hammock Marsh – part 1

Over the last several months, I have developed a habit of walking every single morning and I always take my camera with me. I look for any wildlife or scenery to photograph and I walk a few miles. I enjoy sharing my photos with friends and family both on my own facebook page and on… Continue reading A Morning Walk at Oak Hammock Marsh – part 1

A Couple of Walks in Assiniboine Park

A few days ago, I went to Assiniboine Park for a mid morning walk and this morning I made a return trip for an early morning walk. There wasn’t a huge difference in what I saw on the walks, but there were a lot less people around for the early one. There was also a… Continue reading A Couple of Walks in Assiniboine Park

Bunn’s Creek and Sturgeon Creek Walks

I thought that when I actually got a photo of one of the Cardinals that live around and near Bunn’s Creek, I would be satisfied – but I would really like better photos. So, I headed back there again a few days ago for another try. My first sighting that morning was upsetting. I found… Continue reading Bunn’s Creek and Sturgeon Creek Walks
