What a show in the bitter wind today. Sometimes bald eagles find food in the river off the balcony. Today we stood outside in the freezing cold and wind just to see how close we could get to six eagles as they landed on the roof and dived down into the river. The wind was so strong they were almost suspended in mid air directly in front of us. We watched them pull up and land where we could almost reach out and touch them, their wings at their full expanse. We heard their claws scratch the roof and their high pitched cries just five feet away. It’s always, always thrilling. 🦅 😲😍 • • • #baldeagles #baldeaglesofinstagram #fraserriver #richmondbc #britishcolumbiawildlife #eaglesflying #beautifulbc #eaglesinflight

What do you do when you're face to face with death? To me, it feels like the final boss. Feels like there's nothing left in the world that's as deadly as death. It overwhelms me with an indescribable feeling I've never felt before. It's been months since facing this boss, and I still can't put into words how I feel. But I can't "try again", or "restart". I have to stay strong facing death, otherwise I'll crumble altogether. Sometimes breaking down is good though. Friends made me realize and understand this because the body and mind need a break. Find strength in weakness - that's what they say. How does it affect you? Perspective. Death really puts things into perspective. Makes you realize what's important. All the fluff, all the stupidest, most ridiculous, dumbest things from my past mean nothing now. Clarity - that's the silver lining. . . . . . #beachtime #richmondbc #vancouver #vancouverisawesome #vancouverbc #vancouverfitness #VancouverCanada #vancouverphotographer #vancouverlife #vancouverblogger #britishcolumbia #britishcolumbiawildlife #photography #photographynature #photographyig #nature #naturephotography #naturelovers #NatureLover #Naturegram #travel #Travelgram #traveling #Travelphotography #travelling #travelblogger #traveler #traveller #travelingram #cancer at Iona Beach Regional Park

Butedale, British Columbia was 'the bee's knees.' ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Butedale was an old salmon cannery that closed in the 1950s. The only one who lives here is Lou, the sweetest old man you will ever meet. Lou lives on this island by himself and his cat Tiger. He has a beautiful little garden full of colorful flowers. This bright daisy in his garden reminds me of cheerful Lou.

Today is Save the Eagles Day! So, I thought it would be fitting to post a picture of a Bald Eagle I photographed in November in Vancouver. Though the Bald Eagle was removed from the endangered list, there are still some species of eagles that are threatened. #savetheeaglesday #baldeagle #baldeagles #eagle #eagles #birdsofprey #raptors #vancouvereagles #vancouver #vancouverbc #bird #birds #nature #naturephotography #wildlife #wildlifephotography #canada #britishcolumbia #britishcolumbiawildlife #chicagophotographer at Vancouver, British Columbia

HAPPY NEW YEAR! My resolution for 2019 is an easy one. After reflecting back on 2018, deciding what brought joy, what habits should continue, and what I should add; I decided I need to make a point of heading outside to spend time in nature every day – not just when it is convenient –every single day if possible. Even if I think I am too busy, I always feel inspired and productive after a half hour or more in the forest or along a hiking path. Today when I went into the woods, I brought my camera along. This little tree squirrel was one of the animals enjoying the beautiful winter day. I also met a mule deer buck with only one antler. I wonder if he dropped the other one somewhere nearby! I have never seen that before. Do they shed one at a time? - - #newyear #resolutions #2019 #happynewyear2019 #OptOutside #smallmomentslikethis #distractionsandinspirations #naturemakesmehappy

A curious Black Bear in a patch of wildflowers. There are areas along the Alaska Highway where wildlife is common like Muncho Lake Provincial Park in British Columbia. This a place you not only watch for great subjects, but watch for great backgrounds as well. #blackbear #bear #wildmammals #mammalphotography #wildflowers #wildflower #wildlifephotography #biggame #bigmammal #muncholakeprovincialpark #muncholake #alaskahighway #britishcolumbia #britishcolumbiawildlife #canada @nikonusa

A pair of Wood Bison Calves play along the Alaska Highway in Muncho Lake Provincial Park, northern British Columbia. Wood Bison were introduced here and are doing very well. It’s a great area to photograph these uncommon mammals. #woodbison #woodbuffalo #bisoncalves #calves #babyanimals #wildmammals #biggame #gameanimal #mammalphotography #wildlifephotography #wildlife #muncholakeprovincialpark #muncholake #alaskahighway #britishcolumbia #britishcolumbiacanada #britishcolumbiawildlife @nikonusa

Every once in a while, female friends and family members will fill me in on what transpires within online dating sites. I am often quite…surprised…by messages they receive from completely unknown participants in this system. What prompts some male humans to avoid any kind of discussion but simply display all their body parts as an opening greeting to females they have never met? I have come to the conclusion…bear with me here…that perhaps my daughters might be better off dating…wait for it…ravens. Yes. Here is the scientific evidence. 1. Ravens are smart. Smart is attractive. They come up with imaginative solutions to problems (like playing dead next to a carcass so other birds think its poisoned and leave it alone, and imitating wolf sounds to get these canines to come over and rip open a carcass they can’t get into). Intellectually, ravens are right up there with dolphins (who actually do look good without any clothes on). 2. Ravens are playful. Playful is fun and not boring…great traits in a long-term mate. They use snow-covered roof-tops as slides. They roll down hills like little kids. They make toys out of sticks and stone, golf balls and pine cones. They crack themselves up and probably you at the same time. 3. Ravens are adaptable. SOOO important in a significant other! They can live anywhere you want to start your career, from mountains to beaches, snowy forests to deserts. And they aren’t picky about food. Yeah, leftover pizza is great; living snacks are great, carrion is great, fresh fruit it tasty and so is your garbage. Not picky. 4. Ravens show empathy. Which may seem a tad lacking on dating sites. They console their friends when they lose fights. They remember their buddies even after being apart for years, and respond to them in an open, friendly ways. They are interested in what you are doing. 5. Ravens like being in a couple. Scientists have found that their level of stress drops when teenage ravens become mated adults. The get together and stay together—for life. If you need anymore evidence of a raven’s charms, just visit @thedailyjames . I for one would love my daughters bringing home a guy like James. at British Columbia

Did you know? The spirit bear, also known as the Kermode bear – and as a white bear by the First Nations people – is a variant of the black bear and is found in British Columbia, mainly on Princess Royal, Gribbell and Roderick Islands. No one knows exactly how many there are, but the number is believed to be fewer than 400. Check our website to see how editor-in-chief Lyn Hughes got on when she went in search for these elusive bears – #linkinbio #wanderlustmag #traveltuesday #spiritbears #britishcolumbia #britishcolumbiatravel #britishcolumbiawildlife #canada_gram #canadianbear #visitcanada #travelguide #travelgram #traveldeeper #travelholic #traveladdict #adventuretravel #travelnow #travelbug #traveltheworld #exploretheworld #travelpassion #travelpic #picoftheday #travellife #travelgoals #wanderlust #travellust

You Want A Piece Of This? | Yoho National Park | British Columbia. Magpies are a species that I've been trying to get a good image of for years, but the only times I ever seemed to see them was as I was driving down the highway. That finally changed in 2017 when I was in Yoho National Park. There was a pair of them hanging around the campground I was staying at, and I was able to watch them as they searched the grass for worms (and found a couple big ones). This bird evidently decided it was tired of worms, because after a little while left the grassy area then proceeded to catch and kill a vole. I didn't get any pictures of the hunt, but I did get this image as it looked up at me with a mouth full of vole with what I imagined to be an intimidating expression. It seemed to be saying "Back off dude, this vole is mine." Fortunately for the magpie, I'd already had breakfast. . . 2019 Acadia National Park calendars available for ordering!

We were watching this young bear for a while as he wandered up the river toward us. He was keeping to the opposite side of the river, so we just stayed put and enjoyed observing him as wandered, stopped and started, getting distracted by smells and sounds here and there, scratching an itch. He didn’t know about us at this point; the sound of the river disguised our presence and we were upwind so he wasn’t going to get a whiff of our ‘hiker smell’ until he was well past us. Which was the plan, for him to carry on past us, way over there on his side of the river. . Plans change though huh 🙈 . When he got to the spot on his side of the river that was level with us he turned and to our surprise (excitement, dismay 😮) he started crossing the river and swam straight toward us. As he approached the river bank we backed up to where we could and then did the thing you do with bears; we stood tall and strong and said “Hello Mr Bear” “Carry on Mr Bear” “We’re not very tasty”. Well, Sal did all that while Wayne shot off a couple of photos (teamwork? 🤔😏). He saw us, he heard our nonsense, and he stopped and observed us for a little while (payback no doubt). He was a young bear and seemed curious. Or perhaps we were just in his path. In any case, he got bored and turned and wandered back in the direction he came. Trolling the other side of the river this time. Mr Bear was doing his rounds. . Would you want to experience this? Or.... no? Tell us with #wasalworld @WASALwildlife . We carried on our hike but not before taking in the beauty of the spot and the thrill of the moment; watching this beautiful young bear doing his thing in the wild. In his world.

Same Ram from last image making it's way along the ridge of the Columbia Valley with Donald Peak in the background. In this image you get a good idea how wide open the valley is. The Columbia Valley is home to the Columbia Wetlands which is a vital link on a major bird migration route. It was designated a wetland of international importance on World Environment Day, June 5, 2005, and is the thirty-seventh such site in Canada. It is "one of the longest intact wetlands in North America", is the headwaters for the Columbia River system. It runs from the town of golden to Canal Flats. 151 sq miles, 15,070 hectares but also hooks into the rivees of the United States and flows towards the West coast. #livelovecanada #canadavacations #Canadianrockymountains #instagood #livelovecanada #wildlifeplanet #Britishcolumbiawildlife #Britishcolombia #exploremag #hellobc #columbiavalley #bcisbeautiful #dailyviewbc #Canoncanada #wildplanet #cleanshotsca #820photoram #Columbiavalley #opcmag #mycanadianphotos #paradisecanada #explorecanada #mycanadianphotos #bighornram #bighornsheep #bctourism #raw_canada

Can you see me? We followed this Porcupine through the woods until it treed itself and gave us the opportunity to photograph it. Porcupines are slow-moving and waddle their way through life. Their quills protect them from would-be predators, but they are one of the most common roadkill animals in Alaska and Northern Canada. . . . #BritishColumbia #canada #nature #explorecanada #ecotourism #nikon #wildlife #explorebritishcolumbia #beautifulbritishcolumbia #porcupine #canadawildlife #mammal #d7200 #mammalsofinstagram #photography #alaskahighway #alcanhighway #naturephotography #nikond7200 #wildlifephotography #nikonusa #srnnaturephotography #quills #porcupinequills #nikonphotography #BC #britishcolumbiawildlife #alaskaroadtrip #alaskawildlife at Alaska Highway
