A collection of scenes and things that captured my interest in the month of July…
Every morning in Puerto Vallarta while enjoying a cup of coffee, I’d have my camera ready to take pictures of activity in Banderas Bay – sometimes it was a cruise ship coming into port or fishing boats, but a lot of times I was trying to capture all the different birds that landed in view of the balcony.
I think this is a tropical kingfisher, but please correct me if I’m wrong.
…just a goose and its shadow out for a walk…
October’s weather has been nothing short of spectacular throughout Saskatchewan. The petunias are still blooming on my balcony and my cherry tomato plant is still producing – and the number of days I’ve had to wear socks this month is in the single digits!
I was in Battleford on the weekend and went to Finlayson Island for a walk with my Mom and Dad and Max the poodle on Saturday morning. I enjoyed the walk, but the pics I took were nothing special so I decided to have a bit of fun adding different filters and effects to try to make them more interesting.
I’ve shared these pics before, but I watched a great DisneyNature documentary the other night called Bears which made me go back and look at pictures I took in the Great Bear Rainforest last year. If you like nature documentaries and/or bears you will enjoy this film. The filmmakers captured amazing footage of a mother and her two cubs (and other bears as well), and the scenery in Alaska is spectacular.
To watch bears in their own surroundings is a special experience. They were aware of our presence in the zodiac, but seemed relaxed and calm, and not threatened.
