A Drive Through Assiniboine Park

The Assiniboine Park Zoo is currently closed for a few days so they can do some maintenance and deep cleaning of areas that they must do when the public is not around. They always accomplish a lot during these 5 days, but I probably would have walked around the zoo instead of just driving through… Continue reading A Drive Through Assiniboine Park

Winter is HERE (and a Short Walk)

I checked the temperature, which was about -10C, and the sun was shining, so I decided to take a walk at Fort Whyte Alive this morning. I didn’t notice the wind until I had arrived at my destination and that wind hit hard. I was already there though, so I entered and started my walk.… Continue reading Winter is HERE (and a Short Walk)

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

A Couple of Days in Riding Mountain National Park – part 3

After leaving the Black Bear with hidden cubs, I returned to the Bison enclosure to head back to the highway. Of course, I took more photos of the Bison and when I saw a couple of Pelicans flying above, I took a photo of them too. On the drive back to the highway, I stopped… Continue reading A Couple of Days in Riding Mountain National Park – part 3

A Couple of Walks in Bird’s Hill Provincial Park – part 1

The provincial parks in Manitoba closed all the trails in their parks earlier this spring due to the extreme dry weather and the possibility of fires. There were several very large and out of control fires burning in the province at that time. After we finally got a few days of rain, the trails are… Continue reading A Couple of Walks in Bird’s Hill Provincial Park – part 1

Day 2 at Riding Mountain National Park

I had decided I wasn’t going to set an alarm to get up and get out for the sunrises this trip – but amazingly enough, I work up early anyway. So – I headed out while it was still dark. I was greeted by the beautiful moon as soon as I went outside. It was… Continue reading Day 2 at Riding Mountain National Park

Back to RMNP – part 5

On my way towards the Bison enclosure I found – not 1, but 2 Coyotes. The first one was very shy and my only photo of him or her was behind the bushes. The second one ha no problem posing for photos. I took several, but will only show a couple of them. They were… Continue reading Back to RMNP – part 5

Looking for Pelicans

I don’t usually go out to walk trails on Saturday, since there are often too many people around to enjoy the walk and very difficult to socially distance – but this morning I thought I would head out to Lockport to see if any Pelicans would like to pose for photos. There were a few… Continue reading Looking for Pelicans

A Morning Walk at Bunn’s Creek

It was a cloudy/dull morning – not a great type of day for photo taking – but I headed to Bunn’s Creek in my never-ending search for the Cardinals that are often seen there. Not seen by me – but by many others. A few months ago, I met a woman who showed me the… Continue reading A Morning Walk at Bunn’s Creek
