Turtle and Fishes

This is a photograph of a turtle swimming amongst fishes. What is interesting to me is that although it is in water the top of its shell is completely dry! What a great swimmer that it can be in water and bask in the sunlight and still not get wet!

I took the photograph in Freeport, Bahamas.

According to Wikipedia, “Turtles are reptiles of the order Testudines characterized by a special bony or cartilaginous shell developed from their ribs and acting as a shield.”

Birds on my Back

Birds on my Back

This is a photograph I took of a Bison with 3 little birds on his back. I love the way nature works together to live in harmony. It was taken in the buffalo paddock.

Interesting to note from Quora, “Many birds like to hang around large grazing animals because these animals disturb insects living in the grass, as Bison or Cows move around grazing there’s a good chance of easy pickings for birds that know this. What better place to watch for lunch than on the back of the animal that is stirring the pot!”

Chipmunk Rising on Pride Rock

This adorable little chipmunk is on the rise of the Pride Rock which comes from the Lion King movie just like Mufasa or Simba. He is perching every so eloquently and royally. So, you see, I have a bit of an imagination…

White Arctic Wolf

I took this photo of this beautiful White Arctic Wolf at the Edmonton Valley Zoo.

According to the City of Edmonton website, “Arctic wolves are well adapted to survive subzero temperatures, up to five months of darkness and weeks without food. To blend in with their surroundings, they are usually white with grey or brown undertones.”

Wild West

Here is an image of free range buffalo or bison in the Wild West of Canada. They are roaming freely across the grassy foothills of the mountains. It is part of the Bison Paddock Road in Waterton Lakes National Park. I like the way the scenery is composed by nature.

My Two Bears

My Two Bears

These really aren’t my two bears but I think they are adorable and cute even though they are dangerous and wild. I took the photograph near Waterton Lakes National Park in Alberta, Canada.

According to Wikipedia, “The brown bear (Ursus arctos) is a bear species found across Eurasia and North America. In North America, the populations of brown bears are called grizzly bears. It is one of the largest living terrestrial members of the order Carnivora, rivalled in size only by its closest relative, the polar bear (Ursus maritimus), which is much less variable in size and slightly bigger on average.”

Hawk on Post

Hawk on Post

Whether you are going north, south, east or west in the prairies, you will see an hawk on a post of a farmer’s field. It is actually a hard picture to get because as you slow down in your car, the hawk takes off.

Interesting information from Wikipedia include, “Hawks, like most birds, are tetrachromats having four types of colour receptors in the eye. These give hawks the ability to perceive not only the visible range but also ultraviolet light. Other adaptations allow for the detection of polarized light or magnetic fields.”

This tiger seems to be playing a children’s game of “Come and Get Me” with sticking out his tongue and saying “Na Na Na Na Na.” He is a gorgeous cat.

These are two beautiful brown cows in the pasture. I took this photo in the Interlake Area of Manitoba where there is very good land for agriculture around Teulon, Arborg and Riverton.

Bambi

Bambi

I have decided to call this little, light-haired deer that I photographed as Bambi. He is adorable. I love his big eyes and huge fluffy ears and face. This was taken between Banff and Jasper in Alberta on the Icefield Parkways Highway 93.

Did you know that according to Wikipedia, “Bambi is a 1942 American animated film directed by David Hand (supervising a team of sequence directors), produced by Walt Disney and based on the 1923 book Bambi, a Life in the Woods by Austrian author Felix Salten.”
