Looking for an Owl

After walking the dogs this morning, I headed to the English Garden beside the Zoo at Assiniboine Park. Several people have been seeing a Barred Owl there and I wanted to see and photograph it also. I couldn’t find him though – even with the help of a friend who had seen him more than… Continue reading Looking for an Owl

Assiniboine Park Zoo in the Winter

There is a lot of good views of the critters in the Assiniboine Park Zoo in the winter. Most of the animals live in the climate that we have here and get much more active in the winter than in the summer, when they would rather find a shady place to sleep. I went there… Continue reading Assiniboine Park Zoo in the Winter

Assiniboine Park Zoo Visit

I am at the Assiniboine Park Zoo a lot since I have been volunteering there for the last year and a half, but my picture taking while volunteering is limited to my cell phone.  Yesterday I had some time to go there – not as a volunteer, but as a member with my camera.  It… Continue reading Assiniboine Park Zoo Visit

Three Hours at the Zoo

Of course, I am referring to the Assiniboine Park Zoo here in Winnipeg, where I volunteer for a three hour shift once or twice a week.  During that time we move to different locations so that each shift is spent in 3 different areas.  This way we see most of the zoo in the time… Continue reading Three Hours at the Zoo

Assinibone Park Zoo & More Updates

It was a beautiful day yesterday and it has been awhile since I’ve taken a trip to the Assiniboine Park Zoo – so away I went.  I just brought my little camera with me, since it it always in my purse, and I wasn’t planning on taking many pictures – but I did take a… Continue reading Assinibone Park Zoo & More Updates

Arctic Fox Neither of these 2 would hold still for pics, so this is all I managed. Harbour… Continue reading More From Assiniboine Park Zoo

Walking at the Zoo

At least once every weekend, I try to get to one of my walking places. Yesterday the Zoo was the attraction because the new baby Snow Leopards are now out on display and I wanted to see them.

Assiniboine Park Zoo – April 2015

I picked up an annual membership to the Assiniboine Park Zoo so will be putting up highlights of many of the visits.  I love the critters there and the zoo gives me a place to walk and enjoy the outdoors, so I will likely go there often especially during the summer months. The bears were… Continue reading Assiniboine Park Zoo – April 2015

Arctic Fox – Assiniboine Park Zoo

I love the little Arctic Foxes.  Well – yes, I love all the critters and they are all special, but these little guys are  – well, special.  🙂 They are very difficult to get a picture of because the chain link fence surrounding their enclosure is hard to shoot through and they seldom stop moving… Continue reading Arctic Fox – Assiniboine Park Zoo

Battery Woes

Thunderstorm with lots of rain last night.  The thunder was just rolling in when I went to bed and amazingly enough, I slept soundly the whole night.  When I first woke up I expected to find out that it had past without much rain or anything – but the huge puddles everywhere let me know… Continue reading Battery Woes
