Giraffe Close-up

I love to see animals close-up. This is a giraffe’s face and head. I think his spots are ever so nice. This was taken at the Greater Vancouver Zoo in Aldergrove BC.

Lion’s Feet

I love close-ups of wildlife. These are lion’s feet. They are so incredible with the foot padding and the beautiful fur around it. “The lion (Panthera leo) is a species in the family Felidae; it is a muscular, deep-chested cat with a short, rounded head, a reduced neck and round ears, and a hairy tuft at the end of its tail.”

Close-Up

This is a photo I took of a close-up of a leopard’s head. He is magnificent – isn’t he? The leopard is one of the five extant species in the genus Panthera, a member of the Felidae. The leopard occurs in a wide range in sub-Saharan Africa and parts of Asia.

Golden Eagle Head

I took this photo of the Golden Eagle near Lake Winnipeg.  I also saw and took photos of Bald Eagles.  Their range of living is 200 km2 (77 sq mi) based on what Wikipedia says.  This is quite a big territory but not if you are a flying eagle that soars across the skies with ease.  They have a partial migration.  If they are further north, they usually migrate when living at a latitude of 60 degrees north and shorter migrations if they are at the 50 degree latitude.  If you take the location of Gimli, Manitoba they are at 50.6667° N, 97.0500° W.  And if you are at Winnipeg, Manitoba the near center of Canada it is 49.8994° N, 97.1392° W.   These beautiful yet hardy birds will only do a partial migration during the cold months of winter.

Corona Madonna

Back in 2009, we visited Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.  We visited the Church of Our Lady of Guadalupe.  I took a few photos outside and a number inside.  I took a photo of the statue of Mary and then as I was leaving the church, I wanted to see what the pictures looked like and found that there was a Corona of Light around the head of the Madonna.  I was amazed.   I went back in to take more photos but could not create the same effect.

This corona was NOT photoshopped in at all.  It is as I was able to capture with my digital camera at that special moment in time.
