Went to visit the osprey yesterday and felt like I stumbled onto the set of a porn movie. I love her expression in the 3rd shot.

Up close and personal with a Porcupine on the nature trail. Loving my new Tamron 150-600mm, this is not cropped at all.  :D

Was out for a family snowshoe hike this afternoon in the lower Gatineau Park and managed to spot another Barred Owl. I suspect this one is a juvenile as he was a fair bit smaller then the previous one I saw

Finally managed to get some Snowy Owls!  :)
There were two of them on the poles alongside a skidoo trail and didn't seem bothered by me or the skidoos going by every now and then. I'm happy to note that there was no baiting going on, at least while I was there. :)

A few of today's shots, no luck with finding any Snowies or much else for that matter. Ended up seeing a lot of crows and some chickadees.

Story
Tagline
part time stay@home dad / part time IT support guru / amateur photographer/astronomer
Introduction
I'm a part time stay @ home dad and work part time in IT support. I'm into photography, astronomy and geocaching and hiking. I completed my 365 Photo-A-Day challenge, overall I think it was a success. I know that I learned a lot and definitely learned the limits of what my camera can't and can't do.
I decided to take a break from the 365 and focus more on learning new techniques and polishing what I know without the pressure of having to take a shot every day.
