White-tail Deer on my Doorstep

A White-tail Deer and her 3 fawns have been on the area in front of my window for the last several days. The first pictures were taken from my window looking over a field just past the parking lot in July and August – up to yesterday. This morning, I found them on my doorstep. … Continue reading White-tail Deer on my Doorstep

A Little Walk

Yesterday, I had absolutely nothing scheduled except for laundry, so after the laundry was done, I went for a walk along the Seine River.  I just brought my little camera that does’t have a lot of zoom, since it fits into my pocket.

Day 2 continued – Riding Mountain National Park Oct 17

When the Moose had moved on, I said good-bye to Anne and continued towards the Bison enclosure.  I was looking at the beautiful fall colours as I entered and after going around a bend in the road, it was suddenly foggy.  The tall grasses were interesting in the fog with the frost still on them… Continue reading Day 2 continued – Riding Mountain National Park Oct 17
