Dolphin

I love dolphins and whales. This is a underwater picture of a dolphin. According to Wikipedia, “Dolphin is a common name of aquatic mammals within the infraorder Cetacea. The term dolphin usually refers to the extant families Delphinidae, Platanistidae, Iniidae, and Pontoporiidae, and the extinct Lipotidae. There are 40 extant species named as dolphins.”

This is a very close-up of a crocodile. It is very scary looking especially under the glowing lights. “Crocodiles (subfamily Crocodylinae) or true crocodiles are large semiaquatic reptiles that live throughout the tropics in Africa, Asia, the Americas and Australia.” Wikipedia

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.

West Coast Islands

This is a picture of some islands off of the West Coast of Vancouver just north on the way to Squamish and Whistler, BC, Canada. It is rather ominous looking with the clouds.

I love the symmetry of the water and the sky.

Sleeping Cheetah

Here is a close-up of a sleeping cheetah. Isn’t he marvellous? He looks so serene and peaceful. Doesn’t he remind you of a domestic cat the way he sleeps?

Ridge Lines

This is an incredible view of the ridge lines found in the Grand Canyon in Arizona, USA. I love the flow of the rock. I like the difference in the red and green hues. There is a path down below.

Red Hill Up Close

Red Hill Up Close

This is the wonderful Grand Canyon in Arizona, USA. I love the angle and closeness of this right-hand hill. There is so much texture and structure to the hill. As well, there are great crevices in the background. It is really quite scenic.

Circle Gorge

This is from a helicopter view of the Grand Canyon, Arizona. I like the circle gorge as I think it is amazing the winds have created such an incredible structure.

We were so high, that we were almost at the cloud level.

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.

Seagull Sticks

Pretty much anywhere you go when you are near water; you will find Seagulls or Gulls. I read that these birds breed on every continent and even on the fringes of Antarctica and the North Arctic which I think is amazing.  I think this speaks to their hardiness and ability to adapt to various climates around the world.  I do realize they are mainly scavengers and so this explains their ability to sustain themselves.  Apparently, they can live a long time and often mate for life.  Their offspring are precocial which means they are able to be mobile upon hatching out of their eggs, among a few other things.  This photo that I took was on a lake which had these large pieces of wood sticking out of the water which I believe is being used to moor boats to near the shoreline.  It looks as if the Seagulls have taken over.  Enjoy!
