A Couple of Hours at Lockport with Pelicans (and friends)

Yesterday looked like a nice day and I had nothing in my calendar – so I headed north to Lockport to see and photograph the Pelicans around the dam on the Red River.

Hanging out with Maximus and Finnegan

You may remember Finnegan from last year when I looked after her and her older sister Neko.

Many of them may have even stopped for a rest on the rivers or little lakes in… Continue reading Oak Hammock Marsh in April

Return to Canadian Museum for Human Rights

It has been extremely cold here and I don’t have any incentive to walk outside, so I decided that a return visit to the Canadian Museum for Human Rights would provide lots of walking space as well as a place for me to absorb more of the stories there. One of the nice perks of… Continue reading Return to Canadian Museum for Human Rights
