Week 27 - Red, White, Blue for #2012project52 curated by +Giuseppe Basile and +Kate Church Moderated by +Greg Berdan +Gretchen Chappelle +Gary Munroe +LaDonna Pride +Shelly Gunderson and of course +Sue Butler

Canada Day celebrations on July 1st - so I decided to have a go at fireworks. Learned lots and looking forward to another opportunity (without waiting a whole year!) to improve. One important lesson I learned was to carry a small flashlight so I can see what settings I am changing to!

The American White Pelican certainly qualifies as a big bird. With an approximate wing span of 2.8 m it is mighty impressive as it glides on the air currents.

My share with #BirdPoker  and +Phil Armishaw Today's challenge Tip of the Beak.
I had an image of this fellow drumming his breast - acting all manly, but the tip of his beak did not show up well with the bubbles and splashing water. It is certainly fun watching them perform for the ladies.

Returned from PSW and a side trip to southern Utah. Captured this scene on our way to Arches National Park. Something I like about it. Maybe because it is two photos in one.

There are so many amazing photogs on Google+ I rather hesitate to post this notice. But nothing ventured, nothing gained, so here goes.
I have posted my first ever Blog. Check it out, I would love some feed back. Too long? Too short? Too many images? Not enough detail? Any suggestions for improvements would be gratefully received. Thanks for your time and effort in critiquing this post.

I have made a promise to myself that I will set up a web site over this winter. I got looking into it and oh boy its a tough decision on what to use. I am wondering if anyone out there has any recommendations for me. An added consideration is - I'm Canadian! Some providers charge huge shipping rates to Canadian destinations.
Thanks for any input!

My contribution to this weeks theme for #2012Project52 curated by +Giuseppe Basile and +Kate Church with moderators +Greg Berdan +Gretchen Chappelle +Gary Munroe +LaDonna Pride +Shelly Gunderson and last but never least +Sue Butler

There's a feeling of frost in the air in the mornings now so I don't think we will see these green delicacies ripen but their faster ripening companions were certainly tasty.

I've gone back through my album and taken stock of missing weeks, since I was doing lots of shooting throughout most of those missing weeks I will try to fill in the spaces with images shot in the corresponding weeks and when completed with those will shoot new images to fulfill the challenge. That said, here is Week 29 - Summer/Winter for #2012Project52 curated by +Giuseppe Basile and +Kate Church as well as moderators +Greg Berdan +Gretchen Chappelle +Gary Munroe +LaDonna Pride +Shelly Gunderson and +Sue Butler

Summer holidays took us to one of my fav locations - Vancouver Island, where we happened upon these hang gliders sailing above the sea, sand and shore.

I think I have slipped rather behind in my submissions (June is always a busy busy month) and now I am away on holidays. I dragged my poor husband out early the other morning looking for Fisgard Lighthouse as per +Andrew Willard 's recommendation but they don't open the gates until 10:00 a.m. Made a swift change to plan B and was happy with the results.

The Highwood River that runs through my town is usually a lovely spot to enjoy a little respite from the heat of August or catch a trout or two in the evenings but in the spring it can be a totally different creature. With water coming down from the mountain snowpack Spring run-off and above normal rainfall our friend has turned into a dangerous and threatening torrent of muddy water.

I managed to catch this Harris Hawk at the moment she hit her handler's hand - more a matter of good luck than good management. When I tried to catch it again it turned into a disaster. Moral of the story - be satisfied with what you got the first time, sometimes it is the best you are going to do.

Sometimes we make things harder than we should. I've been wracking my brain trying to come up with something novel for this weeks theme then last night we decided to enjoy a fire out on the patio. Our Springer Spaniel settled into a chair near her dear master and gazed lovingly at him. Couldn't resist, pulled my phone out and got this shot.

Meet Snoopy, a permanent resident of the Alberta Bird of Prey Recovery Centre in Coaldale AB. Somehow I missed putting this shot into my last post. Sharing to day with #BirdPoker "scavengers" for +Phil Armishaw

This is Snoopy, he's a Turkey Vulture and a resident of the Alberta Bird of Prey Recovery Centre located at Coaldale AB. You may recognize him from the opening scene in Shanghai Noon where he was nibbling on Owen Wilson's ear. Visiting the center provided a wonderful opportunity to photograph numerous birds of prey, practice techniques and to learn more about some of the lessor known raptors and scavengers as well the their more famous relatives.

#BirdPoker "snow or sand" curated by +Phil Armishaw
This Northern Shrike flew into my patio window and immediately got himself up into a nearby tree to regain his senses. That gave me an opportunity to change lens, fire off 50 shots and get my bird identification book out. After reading about this fellow I was glad to see him leave my yard (never to return) and leave the visitors to my feeder alone.

Sorry I'm late posting - I have lots of excuses I won't bore you with.
Got this shot of a Harris Hawk while visiting the Alberta Bird of Prey Rescue Centre. Visiting a location like that gives you a wonderful opportunity to practice that would take months in "the wild".

We've been having some dramatic weather around here lately so I headed out during a break in the action to see what I could shot.

This lovely Mountain Bluebird was taking a little breather from supplying food to his nest of hungry babies.
