Conestogo Heron

On Sunday I went for a bike ride down the trail along the Conestogo River south of St. Jacobs and came across this guy standing watch on the other side of the river. They are usually pretty skittish and fly away at the first sight of a human but he was content to stay put while I took his portrait.

Swan Shower

This swan was having fun rustling it’s wings around in the water creating it’s own morning shower.

This was taken this last winter before the water froze over in Harrison Park Owen Sound.

Happy Canada Day!!

Swan at Harrison Park, Owen Sound

A few weekends ago I was in Harrison Park, Owen Sound where there are quite a few waterfowl in and around the pond. This swan sitting in the snow preening its feathers caught my eye. The beauty and simplicity of white on white was a pleasure to watch and photograph.

We came across this Peacock in a park in Victoria Vancouver Island. He had an eye for the ladies!

This Pariquin Falcon was the last Raptor to pose for us at the Mountsberg Raptor Centre. They were all equally beautiful and amazing!

Taken at the Mountsberg Raptor Centre where many of these birds have permanent injuries which have left them incapable of surviving on their own in the wild. Often, these injuries are caused by human activity. Now they live at the centre and provide visitors a chance to experience them up close and learn how we can reduce our negative impact on them.
