A pair of mourning doves.

First pictures taken this year that I am posting now. Mourning doves are often seen in the garden, but taking a picture of a couple at a feeding station is more rare, at least for me, until this year. The sun shone perfectly on them.

Early morning fox.

The picture was taken last December, very early as the best time to see foxes is early in the morning as they are hunting. This one looked at me from afar and seemed unhappy to see me. One of the least tame foxes in the garden.

The red squirrel.

This picture was taken last December. There was not much light but this red squirrel was running all over the place. It eventually was curious enough to land near me. I prefer the red squirrels to the gray ones as they are more interesting but tougher to take a picture of.

Fox on the rocks!

This picture was taken last November. I happened to walk in an area of the garden where rock formations are situated and I was lucky enough to stumble on a fox that was in the area stretching.

Scratching an itch!

I took this picture last September. It was a cloudy day and I was looking for birds to photograph. Suddenly I was alerted to a heron that landed on one of the nest boxes for birds. I just had the time to get there and catch the heron scratching itself in the wind.

White-throated sparrow.

This picture was taken last October in the garden. I was lucky to see it as I was leaving the area and spotted it on the roof of a structure. A rare visitor to the garden.

The common flicker.

I took this picture last December. A notorious shy bird I was very lucky to see it appear near a bird feeder. Probably my best picture of a flicker.

Spider vs fly!

This picture was taken in late July 2017. I had my 150 mm macro with me and decided to focus on garden spiders. Very happy to find one in battle with a fly. Guess who won….

Eastern chipmunk in the field.

Saw this little fellow last June, eating some flowers in a small area of the botanical garden. I thought that the background was very nice and the chipmunk cooperated nicely with me.
