Wild Rose of Alberta

Here is a beautiful, pink rose bush that represents the symbol of Alberta. I took the photograph in Elk Island National Park near Edmonton.

According to the Indigenous Teaching and Learning Gardens website, the Indigenous used the wild rose as follows: “Used medicinally to treat bee stings, colds, blindness and diarrhea. The rose has also been used in ceremonial medicine. Rosehip rinds were eaten.”

Bloedel Roof

This is a black and white photograph I took of the roof of Bloedel Conservatory found at Queen Elizabeth Park in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

I like the geometric design in the roof which is complimented by the plant life.

According to the Vancouver Parks and Recreation website: “More than 120 free-flying exotic birds, 500 exotic plants and flowers thrive within its temperature-controlled environment.”

I really like the way the two Big Horn Sheep are pretty much camouflaged with the brown background. They are stoic even as they sit eloquently on the ground. This was taken at Bearizona Wildlife Park near Flagstaff Arizona where you drive through the Ponderosa Forest.

In Between

The Canada Goose is between two tree trunks. He is heading towards the water. In the background, you can see another goose rising up out of the green algae water.

It was taken at St. Vital Park in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada and as the geese are back now, it will be a common sight again.

Happenstance

Happenstance

I was just walking along in a park when I looked down and saw the beautiful arrangement of an oak leaf and acorns on the pathway. It was as if someone had intentionally put it there to be just in perfect balance and harmony. It is nature against a man-made backdrop. “From the beginning seed of a small acorn, will grow a magnificent oak tree which started out with humble beginnings with dreams and aspirations of greatness.” Quote by Mary Mikawoz.

Keen Sense

This beautiful and incredible mammal is reposing and relaxing on the green grass along some boulders. It was taken at the Assiniboine Park Zoo in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.

According to the Internet,”Polar bears have a keen sense of smell, which they use to find prey. A polar bear can sniff out a seal on the ice 20 miles (32 kilometers) away, and can smell a seal’s breathing hole in the ice more than half a mile away, according to the National Zoo.”

Mama And Ducklings

I like this image of the Mama Duck and her little wee ducklings. They are in a algae covered pond at St. Vital Park in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. I am not sure why but that spring there was a lot of green algae in the pond.
