Several years ago I started a project I called “Imagine”. The purpose of this project was to entice Canadians to see more of Canada by showing them images of some of the beautiful places in Canada and asking them to “Imagine” what it would be like if they were standing in that spot. I have always thought that so many Canadians tend to travel to the Caribbean, or to Mexico or the US instead of staying here in our incredibly beautiful county. There is so much to see and do in this country and yet so few Canadians actually “see” it.
In celebration of Canada’s 150th birthday I have put together a video of images I have taken across Canada. I hope you enjoy these images and that you can visit some of the stunning places that these images come from.
This afternoon I drove back to the area where the Short Eared Owls had taken up residence. About halfway there it started to snow. However there were two females, one sitting in a tree out in the middle of the field and the other, a young one, sitting in a tree right beside the road. Such pretty girls! 🙂
This morning I attended a workshop at the Mountsberg Conservation area’s Raptor Centre. The centre currently has approximately 15 species of birds of prey that have suffered permanent injuries that leave them incapable of defending themselves in the wild. Our ambassador for the morning, Sandra was wonderful and very knowledgable. I could certainly tell that this was not a job for her, but a passion. I will be featuring some of the birds over the next few days in the LTTL project. For today, this little girl is a Screech Owl. She was wonderful to photograph!
