Linda Steele commented on "Baby muscrat's outing" 2017-06-21 6:49am

Thank you Jeff Aelick and Sticks. The young muscrat swam across the pond very close to me and then pulled off a piece of reed to nibble on. It was obvious that the rock that I was standing on was its regular dining spot, as it swam towards me. With my zoom lens on, I had to retreat to be able to keep taking photos of it, as the young muscrat swam righ up to me and them climbed up on the low, flat rock that I had vacated to enjoy its meal . Quite an amazing experience.

Thank you hmellon for your comment. After the deer did his jump, he walked down the street that lead to a small bush. I was heading home when I looked back to see a group of 6 teenagers fanned out across the road chasing the deer. I turned and gave them a serious scolding and they grudgingly backed off while the deer rested in the shade of someone's back yard until it was safe to slip away.

Thanks for your positive feedback yvan_leduc. Although I have had my Canon RebelT4i for a few years, I found that I wasn't as skilled as I should be and recently bought a camera specific"for Dummies" reference book which is very helpful in adding to my knowledge. Also my favourite feature is my "multiple shot" setting : I do have to deleate many photos but often get a shot I am proud of.

Thank you Sticks. Shot was taken down by a local marsh where muscrat, geese, duck, herons (great blue and green backed), assorted turtles and birds etc. provide subjects for nature shots.

Thank you Lyrinda_Sheppard It was quite an experience being in the field when the lambs were put out in the pasture for their first outing with their Moms.

Linda Steele commented on "Canadian goose Mom and young babies " 2017-05-14 10:04pm

Thank you Sticks and hmellon for your nice comments. I love geese for their parenting skills. They are community minded birds and share off babysitting duties with other parents. They also are fiercely protective of all the young in their flock. Last year I watched the parents work together to step between a group of babies and a racoon with distemper. Four large adults stood between the babies and the aggressive racoon while the young birds were herded safely down on to the pond by others in the flock. The racoon was trapped and taken for assessment at a vet by our by-law officer removing the danger from the flock.
