Goat on play structure, Pineridge Hollow, Manitoba

_E6A2507

Pineridge Hollow near Birdshill Provincial Park, Oakbank, Manitoba is great destination for a short day trip.  The quaint rustic property includes a wonderful store, restaurant, and summer farmers market.  But for me being a photographer and animal-lover, the goat on his/her very own play structure was the highlight.

Polar Bear, superman

_E6A8723-Edit

This Polar Bear at the Journey to Churchill in Assiniboine Park Zoo, Winnipeg had just dove in and continued by in a near perfect position.  I’ve patiently tried for this shot quite a few times, finally everything came together.  He almost looks like he could fly, just requires a photoshopped Superman cape.

Meeting Fergus, the first time

20121010 Mont Tremblant-70-EditThis woman was a tourist from Tokyo, Japan, who was really enamoured with Fergus. In a bizarre set of coincidences we ran across her bus tour 3 times. This was their first meeting in Mont Tremblant, Quebec, followed by a another meeting in Old Quebec City and finally at Niagara Falls. By this time she came running over to both him and Angus yelling their names. She spoke broken english and in another strange coincidence her english speaking daughter had spent years living in our own hometown of Winnipeg, Manitoba.
