The glacial lakes often have such marvelous colors. Emerald Lake is located in Yoho National Park Canada. It is the largest of Yoho's 61 lakes and ponds, as well as one of the park's premier tourist attractions. A 5.2 km (3.2 mi) hiking trail circuits the lake.

The first non-indigenous person to set sight on Emerald Lake was Canadian guide Tom Wilson, who stumbled upon it by accident in 1882. A string of his horses had gotten away, and it was while tracking them that he first entered the valley. The lake had an impression on even the most seasoned of explorers: "For a few moments I sat [on] my horse and enjoyed the rare, peaceful beauty of the scene." It was Wilson who gave the lake its name because of its remarkable colour, caused by fine particles of glacial sediment, also referred to as rock flour, suspended in the water. However, this was not the first time Wilson had dubbed a lake 'Emerald'. Earlier that same year he had discovered another lake which he had given the same moniker, and the name even appeared briefly on the official map. This first lake however, was shortly renamed Lake Louise.

By our third full day in Punta Cana I was beginning to get a feel for some of the wildlife who called the resort home. I was particularly excited to discover a pair of American Kestrels, a species that I have found very difficult to photograph in the past. Here in Ontario they normally are seen perched on power lines and fly off almost immediately if you slow your vehicle down to take a photo. In Punta Cana it was certainly different.

This particular morning I spotted both the male and female perched on the uppermost spike of separate palm trees. I took the opportunity to photograph them. The shooting angle was very steep because I wanted some closeup shots but only had my Sigma 70-200mm F2.8 +2x teleconverter.

I started with the male and then moved over to the female. Neither bird was doing much however shortly after I started taking pictures of the female she changed her posture. They next thing I knew the male arrived and I was able to capture a whole series of images of this intimate moment.
