Love's labour lost

Wed, 27 Jun 2012 00:52:04 -0400

It is easy to anthropomorphize animal behaviour, to see the selfless act in what is really just the biological imperitive, the need to pass on one's genes. Or the vicious act, depending on the behaviour and our own values and...

When Hares fly

Wed, 30 May 2012 11:47:09 -0400

One of my photos will soon be traveling around the north, in a rather big way. This photo of an Arctic Hare that I took this spring was bought by First Air. In about a month's time it will be...

The landslide brings you down.

The Saint George's Society Cliffs are one of my favourite places out here. Spectacular red vertical cliffs that jut 600 feet out of Adam's Sound, they are right around the corner from where I live. This time of year we...

Nemesis no more

It may surprise some people, given where I live, that I have never seen a Snowy Owl up here. Oh I've seen them in the south, on one of their irruptions, but never up where they are a common breeding...

Some times you're the windshield, some times you're the bug

I had two interesting encounters with Ravens today. Both decidedly different. This morning we headed off dog sledding, as we do most weekend these days. The puppy is getting big enough and bold enough that he has followed us on...

Ol' Halfbeak's return

Fri, 06 Apr 2012 22:22:22 -0400

Almost exactly three years ago, on April 8th, 2009, I had the opportunity to photograph an unusual Raven. The Raven, feeding on some scraps of meat behind the House, was missing half of its bottom beak. An unusual site to...

Backlit flight

Sure its a photo of burning garbage. But the backlit smoke, contrasted by the Raven in flight makes it one of my favourite images thus far this year.

More Hare

Bunny Bonanza

The Arctic Hare (Lepus arcticus) population is on a high year this year. For much of the same reasons as people in the south are seeing huge numbers of Snowy Owls this year, the hares enjoyed a good breeding season....

Pins on a map

Fri, 24 Feb 2012 21:31:00 -0500

This afternoon, as I walked from the plane to terminal in Iqaluit I looked back to a beautiful slim crescent moon, followed in the sky by Venus and Jupiter. As the sky has deepened tonight I can't seem to keep...
