  • Spring is a magical time to be outside, since it’s the time of year when many animals are raising their young. I had a memorable experience last Spring watching the devotion of a pair of Sandhill Cranes as they fed their less than a week old colts insects under the morning sun.

In the days leading up to Earth Day, I’m sharing photos from some of my favourite experiences on our incredible planet.

  • Eastern Gray Squirrel
Pennsylvania, U.S.

Date taken: April 18, 2019

A common visitor to my backyard, who often snags the nuts from the feeders. More importantly, she tends to spill all the seeds from the feeder. She’s a little bit of a pest, but she’s cute and efforts to keep her away from the feeders are futile.

  • This one is getting in his afternoon Yoga.  Balancing Bear Pose.  Looks like it turned into an impromptu pedicure.

  • Sorry I've been gone for a bit! A lot has happened- I was out of town, and there was a tornado that struck across the road from my house. Pretty exciting week, really!

Before I went out of town, I went out looking for salamanders again. While I didn't find salamanders, I did find some spring peepers. So many that the chorus was deafening! To think that such a tiny frog can be so loud! They are nocturnal and usually stay up most of the night croaking their little hearts out!

These frogs are some of the first frogs to be out and about in the spring across their range- the Eastern US. In the northern areas, including where I live, they sometimes have to endure freezing temperatures during this period. To deal with this, they can survive their body temperature dropping to -9 degrees Celsius! In the winter, they hibernate under bark and leaves.

  • Bird heading in the direction of the Southern Ice Fields of Parque Nacional los Glaciares. To me this photo is an illustration of the bravery of the animal species that inhabit the hostile environments of Patagonia. Kudus to you tough bird. You have my respect.

  • Burrowing owls are a common sight in southern Florida, but I can't help myself, I get a couple shots every time I pass a nest with my camera😁
Burrowing owls have a declining population, but are listed as a least concern. Yet these little guys are highly protected and fairly common here in Florida
