Starting with the Letter – S

This week Patti gave use the prompt Subjects Starting with the Letter – S for the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge.

I quickly had a long list of ideas for the challenge and was considering a couple of different themes to build a post around.

When I realised that one set of three photos were taken in different seasons I decided to go with a set of four photos, one from each season.

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Wild

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.

Unexpected encounter.

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.
