August 31, 2015Coola the Grizzly BearEllyStornebrinkNorth Vancouver, BCAugust 30, 20152959Coola, one of the grizzly bears on top of Grouse Mountain occasionally seemed to yawn whilst awaiting his morning meal. I was waiting for the next yawn though this looks more like bared fangs!11362592-1456
August 31, 2015Beautiful BearKimBlackstockWest Vancouver, BCAugust 18, 20152546Spotted this bear roaming around Cabin Lake during our hike at Cypress Mountain. Fortunately, it was on the other side of the lake from us. It ignored all the hikers & swimmers.-10003000-4000
August 27, 2015Leave it to the Beaver.JimMiddletonNorth Bay, ONAugust 12, 20152389After a recent day of rain a Beaver's dam (VIDEO uploaded) was stressed by the surge of water and required a few fixes to stop excessive leaking. The dam is fairly new in the Laurier Woods Conservation Area and has opened up more areas to explore and play home to some new inhabitants as a result of the Beaver's work. There were a few Beavers working on the dam but only this one stuck around as I watched it work. It was not being shy about getting dirty in the least!-10003000-4000
August 30, 2015Let go of my FootRussellMilksOttawa, ONAugust 30, 20152138Happened upon a Garter Snake with a foot hold on a Toad.
I don't know what the snake was thinking, it could hardly fit the Toad's foot in it's mouth let alone be able to eat the toad.
The toad came hopping out of the low lying brush pulling the snake along with it. Finally turning around a few small saplings, they were dead locked. The Garter Snake kept pulling and twitching, while the Toad just sat there as if to say, let go of my foot. I'm to big for you to eat fool..-24484912-7360
August 28, 2015Flying SquirrelNatureLoverOttawa, ONAugust 27, 20151676Had the opportunity to photograph a Flying Squirrel (southern species) on the outskirts of Ottawa tonight. The Flying Squirrel is a nocturnal creature so is seldom seen in the day time. The vast majority of people in Ottawa may not even realize these critters could be in their backyard, given suitable habitat that is. They don't actually fly but rather glide using the outstretched webbing that runs from fore leg to hind leg on both sides.131630-499
