Top 10 Wildlife Photos of 2014

Keeping it light and easy at year-end, this is the BPS Top Ten.

Waxing nostalgic on my 2014 in the great outdoors:

Birding Begins: The Hawk of Own Park

Birding Begins: The Hawk of Owen Park

Breakfast with Bald Eagles

Bird on a Fire

Mother Loon of Minocqua

Yellow

Little Yellow Bird

Bunny 028

Edna’s Bunny

These shots are in chronological order but if I had to pick my favorite it would be Mother Loon.  Not only is it technically sound (especially since I captured it from our moving boat) but I had never seen a loon before and like the bald eagles, it reminds me of so many happy days in Wisconsin.

These shots were all taken with my Canon 7D and Tamron 300mm lens.  I’ve mentioned this before but it bears repeating: my zoom changed my life.  It changed my relationship with nature, it changed my time spent as a Stay-At-Home-Mother and therefore improved my attitude, health and energy levels and it changed my creative self.  I would have never bought such a thing on my own so I give thanks again to my husband who knew me better than I knew myself; who treats me better than I treat myself.  Thank you, Kris.

Bonus:

Alley Cat: the only wildlife I have shot since moving to Montreal in August. I think she could give Grumpy Cat a run for her money, don’t you?
