Hi - new to the forum, and only just starting using a superzoom, having previously been a point and click photographer.

Here's a few shots of deer that were walking in the local park today.

There have been more and more wolf sightings about 3 hours north of me so today, seeing we hit a high of a balmy 10 below celcius, I went for a drive... no wolves but did see this guy eating something just off the road... first surprise was he didn't bolt when I slowed down the car and moved forward slowly.. probalby because he was behind a snow bank... second surprise is he didnt bolt when I stopped the car... so took a few shots... no surprise that when I tried to get out of the car after moving it ahead 100 meters or so to try for some different angle that he bolted before I had gotten right out of the car. Too bad he wasn't on the other side of the road in the sun...

I really love these animals but 1) they all really do look exactly alike to me and 2) they seem to always lurk in the shadows... catching them in direct sunlight is rare.

I really like the first image. For some reason though the second one reminds me of Garfield. I take it by the furry extensions on her ears she's some species of lynx. Where did you take the picture Wolfsong?

Yup its a lynx... Just north of Prince Albert National Park in Saskatchewan near a person's cottage who used to work for me... she has been keeping me updated on her wolf sightings up there. Gonna spend a lot of time up there this summer. I plan on not leaving the province at all this summer as it will be my last summer here and I have never really spent any time photographing it.... well at least that is the plan... lets see if I can live up to it as I usually always get the urge to go somewhere and I did promise to go back and do some more photography in the great bear rain forest.... as well as Haida Gwaii... but that can all wait for the fall!!!

Not the best pic as I was facing the west and setting sun from a fair distance.
Pic is cropped alot also taken from the Jeep with it cold outside and warm inside I believe the heat shimmer effects the pic as well as engine vibration.
Gotta be fast to get these guys.....
This is definately the biggest eastern coyote I have seen yet at least 60-65lb comparing it to our Bouviers at 60lbs....

Change the nose and face structure a bit and it looks like a red wolf kpr. And yup on the heat and engine vibrations... drives me crazy at times.

Well got a call today from a farmer friend about 250km south of me. Told me his nieghbour had a small fox hanging around of late and that it seemed to be a dwarf... really small. Also told me that his kids had been feeding it so it was a somewhat regular visitor so decided to take a drive seeing I haven't seen a lot of foxes of late and this one sounded a bit unusual. Imagine my surprise when I saw this little guy.. not a dwarf but a Swift Fox. Never knew they made it quite this far north but I had heard of them around the Saskatchewan/US boarder so maybe not that far off its range. This is the first one I have ever seen in the wild and I managed to get close due to the kids baiting him. Hopefully they leave him be and he gets on with his life away from humans like he is supposed to. Chubby little guy though so looks like he has got it good where he is... doesn't bode well for him if he continues this behaviour.

This ends a good weekend of photography for me.. if this little guy is still around next weekend gonna take another drive out for hopefully some better light.

Think the kids need to put it on a slowly introduced diet.
They can't just stop all of a sudden but have to keep going now til warmer weather and have it to a point of just getting a snack there once a day by spring.
Unfortunately they'll kill it with kindness by the looks of it.
Might ...blow up... by spring at this rate :)

lol told them the same thing.... I'd say he was about 3kg. I'm hoping to get back soon to see if he is still around... with the right light I should get some awesome shots.

Caught this guy snacking on some fish today. Not the best quality shots, as you can see the water is very dark and there is not much light on overcast days.

Thanks Wolfsong

I found this among some of the Otter shots that I had not gone through. It was from farther away so had to be cropped more but I had to post it.
