A Bit Of Wildlife

Canola Doe

After seeing John E. Marriott’s spectacular wildlife at his seminar Tall Tales, Long Lenses: Bears, Wolves And a Million Bucks, I was inspired to post a few of my wildlife shots.

Because John Marriott only shoots “In The Wild”, I’ve only included shots taken of wild animals in their natural setting.

It was just after shooting a sunset, we were headed home when my wife spotted the little doe at the edge of the canola field. I rolled down the window and shot from the vehicle.

Object of Interest


We were up at the Mount Norquay Overlook above the town of Banff for the view, when we came upon a herd of Bighorn Sheep. This female was taking the lookout role and regarded us with interest.

Cinnamon Bear


We spotted this lovely cinnamon bear between Prince George and McBride, British Columbia a few summers ago. There was a group of bears strung out in the ditch eating vegetation.

Red Fox (Vulpes vulpes)

I saw this great looking Red Fox while on a photo tour with Darwin Wiggett near Fox Valley, Saskatchewan. She was on the far bank of the ditch with her kits. By the time we got stopped and had our cameras out, she had hustled the young ones down the burrow and was standing guard, pretending to be unconcerned.

In the best light…
