Past Squares #4

Throwback Thursday: 15th July 2021

Trees on the Shoreline

A section of the Last Mountain Lake National Wildlife Area, Saskatchewan, Canada at sunset in late autumn.

One of my favourites from Tree Squares month but clearly not many people liked it as it was largely ignored and didn’t get a single comment.

A look back at some of my personal favorite square photos from previous months of squares. Some were popular, some not so popular at the time.

This was a post in Tree Squares Month and is my day 4 contribution to Becky’s October Squares on the theme of Past Squares.

Snow Geese on Autumn Migration

One Word Sunday: Spectacle

My Flora and Fauna Friday post this week is continuing my look back at autumn migration in Saskatchewan, Canada.

A flock of Snow Geese (Anser caerulescens) lift off from a section of the Last Mountain Lake National Wildlife Area. The Last Mountain Lake National Wildlife Area is a staging area for wildfowl on autumn migration

Snow Geese are native to North America breeding north of the timberline in parts of Greenland, Canada, Alaska and Siberia. They spend their winters in warmer parts of North America.

Last Mountain Lake Bird Sanctuary

A small selection of photos from the Last Mountain Lake National Wildlife Area in Saskatchewan, Canada. The Last Mountain Lake Bird Sanctuary is within the National Wildlife Area.

The Last Mountain Lake Bird Sanctuary was the first migratory bird sanctuary established in North America.

It is a staging area for migratory birds. In the autumn there can be hundreds of thousands of Snow Geese and tens of thousands of Sandhill Cranes using the area.

This is my contribution to the Weekly Prompts Weekend Challenge: Sanctuary prompt.

Wide Open Spaces

This is my contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge: In the big wide open spaces prompt.

I was considering a couple of approaches to the prompt before realising that there was one obvious choice, Saskatchewan, Canada.
