The ever wary wapiti.
Spent a few minutes with this beautiful White-talied Deer. Was in the middle of switching lenses and was rummaging through my backpack. When finished, I looked up and there it was about 20ft away looking directly at me. Amazing how quiet they can be, had no idea it was even within the area. This was a very pleasant surprise. #discoverontario #cangeo #sharecangeo #cangeotravel #canadiancreatives #opcmag #explorecanada #exploreontario #natgeowild #natgeoyourshot #winterincanada #wilderness #wildernessculture #getoutside #modernoutdoors #discoverwildlife #exploretocreate #welivetoexplore #createscenery #bbcearth #natureaddict #naturegeography #nature_brilliance #whitetaildeer #modernwild #wildlifephoto #wildlife_perfection #marvelouz_animals #wildlifephotography #wildlife
My happy place is anywhere I can be surrounded by nature. 😊🌿 Where is your happy place?

Humpback whale tail slapping in the Great Bear Rainforest, British Columbia. These large whales display a wide range of surfacing behaviour from breaching to spy-hopping to tail or fin slapping. We watched as this humpback slapped his or her tail hard against the surface of the water over and over again. It made an incredible noise. Scientists believe this behaviour (also known as lobtailing) may be used to communicate with other whales or as a sign of aggression. . . . . . . #whale #humpbackwhale #humpback #whaletail #whalewatching #explorebc @hellobc #explorecanada #greatbearrainforest #britishcolumbia #travelgram #roamtheplanet #wild #wildlifephotography #wildandfree #wildlife #nature #naturephotography #tailslap #animalkingdom @bbcearth @cangeo #EarthCapture #opcmag #wildaboutwhales @natgeoyourshot @natgeotravel @pacificwild @raincoastconservation
It's very important not to disturb owls while they are at a roost. They need to get their rest and conserve energy for their next hunt. If nocturnal owls, like this tiny Northern Saw-whet Owl, are disturbed to the point that they need to flee their roost, they often become targets for being mobbed by diurnal songbirds, and this can also alert diurnal predators. It's never okay to to cross the ethical line for the sake of a photo.This is probably my favourite species of owl - although it's really hard to choose just one. What is your favourite owl? . . . . . #ethicalowlphoto #owlsofinstagram #sawwhetowl #1frame4nature #1birdshot #1natureshot #birdsofcanada #birds_adored #bb_of_ig #birdshots #bird_brilliance #feather_perfection #canadiancreatives #femalenaturephotographycom #sharecangeo #cangeo #nanpapix #opcmag #audubonsociety #naturesbestphotomagazine #naturecanada #cornelllabofornithology #pocketbirds #pocket_nature
. A light snowfall over the Athabasca River in Jasper National Park. Have a great weekend everyone!
I don't often look closely at (or photograph) Mallards since they're everywhere. I usually just quickly scan through them to see if anything more uncommon is hiding among them. But every now and then I stop to appreciate just how stunning they are.
Close up with a burrowing owl. . . While they're native to Western Canada, I'd never seen one until I came to Argentina. Habitat loss in Canada has not been good for these owls. Thankfully, they're common here and there's a nesting pair at our place in Tafi. I've been fortunate to spend time with these guys. . . . . . . #owlsofinstagram #owls #burrowingowl #opcmag #tafidelvalle #tucuman #igbirds #ig_birds #nevercompromise #captureonepro #fujifilm_xseries #myfujifilm #nature_perfection #nature_brilliance #birdphotography #sharecangeo #neverstopexploring #wildlifephotography #birdphoto #travelargentina #fujifilmxt2 #naturephotography #owlstagram
Looking back on previous moments/years/thoughts is always hard. Our minds tend to concentrate on the negative and fester with worry, guilt and shame. ⠀ Lately I’ve been trying really hard to stop myself in my tracks when this starts to happen. One of the most helpful things I have learned is “snowball thinking.” It is exactly what it sounds like. Once I catch myself getting into a deep pit of negative thoughts, I try and stop myself sooner than later. I’ve found that bringing myself back to reality is one of the easiest ways to do so. ⠀ We can quickly admire the life of someone else, pegging them as “perfect” and “wishing we could be them.” What’s even harder... is taking a look at your own life and appreciating you. ⠀ As hard as this is, this is the main tool that I am using right now to control my snowball thinking. I stop myself and concentrate on the present. I try to imagine how I will yearn for this moment after it has passed, and then bring myself back to appreciate whatever moment I am in. ⠀ Just remember that this life that we are living is incredible, we don’t know how or what this is, but let’s all take a moment to appreciate this current moment before it’s gone❤️ ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #britishcolumbia #hellobc #explorebc #hike_bc #hikevibes #hike365 #bcparks #ourbc #bcisbeautiful #thatbclife #lillooet #bestvacations #nikon_canada #imagesofcanada #yourshotphotographer #prohikes #next_landscape #mountaincommunity #opcmag #explorecanada #canadavacations #tourcanada #canadasworld #cangeotravel #earthfocus #lifeofadventure #stayandwander #discoverearth #ourplanetdaily #canada
Back to work today! @sundogjasperab
Pulled over to take a look at this beautiful Snowy sitting on a telephone pole. Several people also stop to take photos with their phones, I was about to leave when he/she took off and flew right over us. Surprised me so much I only got a few in focus shots. Beautiful!

Short-eared Owl from the Okanagan Valley British Columbia, Canada 🦉 🇨🇦
Every once in a while I come across abandoned farm yards. The houses have been demolished and all that are left are old and shapely trees. This spot is a few minutes drive from Edmonton where I live. ------------------------------------- #explorealberta #alberta #allbeauty_addiction #ethereal_moods #agameoftones #sky_captures #earth_shotz   #opcmag #ig_shotz #earthpix #awesome_earthpix #bns_earth #amazing_captures #global_hotshotz #opcmag   #EpicLongExposures #yeggers #ImagesofCanada #sturgeoncounty
Ruby-crowned Kinglet (Regulus calendula) - A beautiful little bird with a distinctive red crest. Photo taken last year. For Flashback Friday.
Banff from above! A full moon rising at sunset. Keep an eye out for the lunar eclipse this Sunday. I’ve never photographed one so It’s time to have a go if the clouds co-operate!
Did you know that you can all enjoy 365 totally free #sunsets in 2019!? Why not try to catch a few in #capebreton 🤗 ❤ #ExploreCBWinter #wildernesstones #NatureForAll #ingonish
The rising sun fills the sky with color as a juvenile Bald Eagle takes a break from its morning meal. If you look closely you can see the blood stain on the tree from its claws. If you havent seen my blog post yet about this memorialable encounter I invite you to click the link in my bio. @best_birds_of_world @best_birds_planet #kings_birds

Look, a porcupine!!! 🦔 😍 A massive thank you to @gnz_canadawildlife for showing this little cutie to me yesterday!
The west coast fog may distort distance, light and color but it touches a place inside you that speaks of misty mountain tops and the ancient ones. #romanticlandscape #rainforest #goosebumps #landscapephotography
It's been a snowy day here in Southern Alberta which got me thinking of my last visit to Elbow Falls back in November on an equally snow-filled day. It can be tricky trying to capture a shot without the lens covered in snowflakes but when you get to spend the morning taking in beautiful views like this it's always a worth-while challenge. _____________________ For information on my photography including fine-art prints and photography lessons, please visit my website (link in bio) _____________________ #gatheringdustphotography #albertatourism #mountainlife #kananaskis #frozenwaterfall #elbowfalls #elbowfallsalberta #winterwonderland #winterscenery #waterfall_collective #waterfall_lover #winterinalberta #albertawinter #alberta #albertaphotography #albertaphotographer #canoncanada #canadiancreatives #opcmag #travelalberta #explorealberta #explorecanada #sharecangeo #imagesofcanada #thebestofcanada #naturelovers #beautyinnature #landscape #canada_photolovers #myalberta

White on white. . . . . It never fails, it seems every day I’ve gone out shooting has been poor light conditions. Regardless it’s still great to get to see the owls. This was such a pretty female. . . . . . #snowyowl #buboscandiacus #sharecangeo #wildlifephotography #ethicalowlphoto #raptors #birdsofprey #georgianbay #elite_owls #elite_raptors #opcmag #winter #imagesofcanada #ontarioforyou #natureismagic
Pretty excited about this weekend’s total lunar eclipse, and fingers are crossed for clear sky. Do you have any plans? I’ll be staying close to #yeg for the show :-) Snaps from Sept 2015 and Jan 2018
Winter is fairly quiet in Waterton and we don’t get many visitors, but occasionally some large groups swing by to check out the views.
