Bunn’s Creek in the Early Autumn

Yesterday morning I decided it was time to go back to Bunn’s Creek for my walk. It has been about a month since I’ve been there. My first sighting was a beautiful Belted Kindfisher. He was on the opposite side of the creek and he tested my camera’s zoom ability. Amazingly enough, I got a… Continue reading Bunn’s Creek in the Early Autumn

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

Back to Fort Whyte Alive

It has been awhile since my last visit to Fort Whyte Alive, so this morning it was time to head back there. It is much quieter than during breeding season, but at this time of year that is normal. There were still plenty of photo opportunities. It was a nice morning for a walk –… Continue reading Back to Fort Whyte Alive

Riding Mountain National Park – day 2, part 2

After lunch I headed back out again – going into Wasagaming with a plan on walking out on the dock at Clear Lake. I didn’t even reach the highway when I saw this doe. She was looking and calling – you can see her mouth open on the last photo. I suspect she was looking… Continue reading Riding Mountain National Park – day 2, part 2

June Trip to Riding Mountain National Park – part 6

After leaving the Pelicans and Ducks, I continued along the gravel road towards the Bison Enclosure.  It is a fairly long drive, so I just sit back and enjoy it. On the way in, I completely missed photo opportunities for 2 Black Bears, that dashed into the bush before I could get my camera ready… Continue reading June Trip to Riding Mountain National Park – part 6

June Trip to Riding Mountain National Park – part 3

We finished yesterday’s entry as I was leaving the Boreal Trail in Riding Mountain National Park.  The walk had such a sweet ending when I met a gorgeous little Pine Marten.  The plan is to continue South and head for the Bison enclosure. I arrived at the Lake Audy Road without incident (or sightings), but… Continue reading June Trip to Riding Mountain National Park – part 3

Beautiful Day for a Walk

A couple of days ago, it rained all day – FINALLY.  With the sun now shining and the moisture from that rain, everything is looking so green and beautiful now.  Amazing that it took until the middle of May before we got the April showers this year. This morning, I grabbed my camera and took… Continue reading Beautiful Day for a Walk

Back to RMNP – Day 2

After a good night’s sleep, Debbie and I were up early, grabbed breakfast at Timmies and headed into the park for the sunrise at Grayling Lake.  I have taken some great sunrise pictures there in the past.  Today we left Debbie’s car in Dauphin and just went in mine for the day. We hadn’t reached… Continue reading Back to RMNP – Day 2

May 26 – Tamboti

It was a very foggy morning and this time, it didn’t go away when the sun rose. First sightings after my foggy morning picture from my deck, but too dark and foggy to take pictures were a single male Impala, Helmeted Guineafowl road block, herd of Impalas, tiny mouse running across the road and some… Continue reading May 26 – Tamboti

Trees, Flowers, Geese and FitBit

It is time to return to my walks at home – so I took a stroll along the Seine River and my country road on the other side of the river this morning. The leaves are quickly coming down, but there are still some very pretty colours on them. The Canada Geese are gathering in… Continue reading Trees, Flowers, Geese and FitBit
