This is my contribution to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Wild.
As someone who has been photographing wildlife for years I had difficulty finding a starting point.
So I decided to go with a selection of photos taken when I wasn’t necessarily expecting a wildlife encounter. When I was out for a sunrise or photographing landscapes for example.
A Striped Skunk that appeared while I was looking for spring migrants around Little Quill Lake, Saskatchewan, Canada.
Sitting on a bench at Dominion Lookout on the Lake Huron shoreline in Southampton, Ontario imagine my surprise when this Red Fox came trotting along the shoreline. I later found out that it was a regular and well known by the locals.
Coming home from photographing a sunrise I spotted these two Sandhill Cranes in a field on our side road.
A Racoon that wandered into the yard one afternoon. I was sitting on the deck having been shooting portraits earlier so had a portrait lens on the camera.
A Sanderling on autumn migration. I had gone down to the Lake Huron shoreline in Southampton, Ontario, Canada for the sunrise and found a small flock of half a dozen Sanderling on the shoreline.
