A Morning at Lockport

I decided to head north to Lockport to see if any Pelicans were still hanging out there. It was a beautiful morning and I enjoyed the drive. When I reached Lockport, I headed for the little park where I can usually get some decent photos, but the bridge construction has pretty much blocked off the… Continue reading A Morning at Lockport

My Walk at Fort Whyte Alive

It was a beautiful morning today, so I decided to head over to Fort Whyte Alive for my morning walk. If you click on the first photo of each group, you can scroll through larger pictures. I put a lot of photos in this one, so smaller ones are shown on this page. On the… Continue reading My Walk at Fort Whyte Alive

A Fort Whyte Alive Walk This Morning

It was a chilly morning today, when I headed over to Fort Whyte Alive with my camera. The first tree I noticed has changed the leaves to yellow instead of the green they have been all summer. I guess autumn has officially arrived. I do love autumn, but it is just too close to winter.… Continue reading A Fort Whyte Alive Walk This Morning

Always Something to see at Fort Whyte Alive

I’ll start with my “before leaving home” shots. My Sunflower plant still has flowers but much smaller than the first ones and just at the bottom of the plant – and a Blue Jay on the tree just off my balcony. Then I headed over to Fort Whyte Alive to see what I could find.… Continue reading Always Something to see at Fort Whyte Alive

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

Pelicans at Lockport

Pelicans are so much fun to watch. Sometimes they are a bit of a challenge to photograph, but I just keep snapping and usually end up with some fairly good photos. One thing I noticed today is the way they fish together. Each bird in the group dives at the same time and comes back… Continue reading Pelicans at Lockport

Back to Fort Whyte Alive

There are 2 places that I love, but haven’t been to visit much this year.   My vacation in Kruger National Park took up plenty of time, along with my move and then my mother’s fall that broke her shoulder. One of the places is  Fort Whyte Alive – right in Winnipeg, which makes it quick… Continue reading Back to Fort Whyte Alive

Cormorant

Hopefully the birds will continue showing themselves again when Chester and I take our walks along the Red River.  This time it was a Cormorant – but he didn’t make it easy.  I had to use the full optical zoom and then keep going into the digital zoom for the pictures that I got. I… Continue reading Cormorant
