A wildlife spectacle, Snow Geese on autumn migration.
My contribution to the One Word Sunday prompt Spectacle.
This is my contribution to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge set by Ann-Christine who asked us to Pick a Word from a list in her post.
I went with two of the words for my post, Crowded and Tangled.
This is my contribution to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Sanctuary prompt.
On reading the prompt I didn’t have any ideas for some time. Then I thought about the Last Mountain Lake National Wildlife Area in Saskatchewan, Canada.
The National Wildlife Area includes the Last Mountain Lake Bird Sanctuary, the first federal bird sanctuary in North America.
The sanctuary is a breeding area for American White Pelicans.

This is my contribution to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Autumn.
For the month of July the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge has the theme of seasons. I decided to go with the same theme for each season, one bird photo, one scenic photo and one flora and fauna photo.
And just to complicate things further, one photo from my time in Ontario, Canada, one photo from my time in Saskatchewan, Canada and one photo from my tims in the U.K.

Storm clouds and light beams at Loch Arkaig, Scotland. I was in Scotland to photograph autumn colour and autumn scenery. After three days of rain the clouds started breaking shortly before sunset.

This is my contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge: The Rough with the Smooth prompt.
I had no ideas for this prompt until I was thinking about going down to the local bay for the sunrise. Which is when the idea of rough and smooth water occurred to me and at that point two photos were obvious picks for the challenge.

This is my day 11 contribution to Becky’s July Squares on the theme of Perspective and another of my eye level perspective photos.
This is an American White Pelican (Pelecanus erythrorhynchos) on a section of the Last Mountain Lake National Wildlife Area in Saskatchewan, Canada. In the breeding season adult birds grow a laterally flattened horn on the upper bill. The horn is shed after the birds have mated and laid eggs.
It was a hot, sunny afternoon so if I wanted to get to eye level with the birds I had two choices, lying in the sun at the edge of the water or set up a tripod in the water and sit in the water with the camera. I chose to sit in the water.
