14 minutes from my front door kpr.... if you notice the tree line in the first 7 shots of the above photos... its the same tree line as my previous post of deer. Seeing the heavy path they made in the pevious set of pics before the set above this tree line obviously creates a corridor/natural wall for them and it seems like quite a few deer use it. The shots were taken pointing north at a range between 60 to 130 meters. abuot 35 meters off the tree line directly east there is a small grouping of maybe 15 or so trees trees.... gonna talk to the land owner and see if he will let me set up a small blind in the clump... perfect place for the perfect light just after sunrise and at a good range... maybe a bit close but I think it will work.

I would think porcupine... seen several in the area but have seen no rabbits or rabbit tracks.

It seems odd to call a town of 2400 urban but these little fellows fit into the “urban Wildlife “ category. These were taken from the roadside but there are some small hardwood stands within town limits that make great natural looking settings.

Looks like tough going there Kpr. I was out on the weekend, trying to find a Rabbit to photograph. There was maybe 12” of snow on the more Northerly sides of ridges. Eight inches or less in other spots but it was that dense granular stuff that would support my weight. Well except for that one spot where it was over 3 feet of water and muck :shock:

Had some work in Fort Nelson this weekend so decided to rent a car and take a drive up to Stone Mountain. I've always been amazed at how many Doll Sheep, Mountain Goats and other undulates I run into in that area... Found 3 Doll Sheep..

Took all the shots from inside the car. Tried to get closer to some Mountain Goats prior to seeing these but took 3 steps off the road and was waist deep in snow so that approach went out the window... need to invest in some snowshoes.

I have to get out there one of these years.
Chris lived in Calgary for a decade or so and has been hinting about a return and that I'd go crazy chasing differant critters out that way.

The snow is melting here steadily.... :D
The river has broken up and open... :D

Awesome shots kpr... the second one subliminaly reminds me of a giant crop circle.. the way the snow and gras make lines in the front and the shadows of the snow in the back all to me kinda layout the pattern of a much larger circle.

Pic number 5 is amazing imo... the way the 3 are all under the tree and even the way the edge of the snow flows... love it.

you'd have a blast in that area kpr... grizzlies!!! I've heard waterton lakes national park in the southwest corner of alberta is suppsoed to be the place to go now in regards to wildlife photography and I wanna get out there for a few days this summer. The areas around and between Jasper and Banff just recieve too much traffic these days. The highway between jasper and Banff is always worth a drive though... if for nothing else than the scenery.
