Black Vixen

I came across this beautiful looking black coloured red fox vixen on my recent fox field trip and was amazed at how thick her tail, known as a ‘brush’ was. Foxes will use their brush […]

He Sticks Like Glue!

Here’s a shot of a grizzly bear mum (Queen of the Khutz) and her yearling cub just waking up one day in June last year. The cub is affectionately known by some as ‘velcro’ because […]

I finally managed to get out on the water last week and bumped straight in to a pod of Biggs Killer Whales (Orca) known as the T75’s. This particular pod, now numbering six orca, are […]

Khutz Star Seen Again!

The Poser

A shot from my last visit to Jasper National Park in Alberta – this male rocky mountain bighorn sheep seemed quite happy to pose for photographs before heading down the rocks in search of a […]
