I like how this image shows the distinct difference in size between the male and female. The female is on the left. I also really love this image.

That will be a date to remember the best show of lights on the Northern Vancouver Island for years from what I am told. Lucky me for being in the right place at the right time as well as having such wonderful friends, both Kevan Bodkin and Anthony Bucci assisted in helping me pre-focus, gave me general setting and some insight on what to expect. Kevan is on Flickr have a look a his wonderful photography

Work has kept me cooped up in a hotel in Boucherville Quebec, right at the time that spring is breaking out in Ottawa. I have had to go back and forth - by car, and the work, designated an essential service, is under strict protocols - on short notice. Recently, on the advice of a friend in Montreal, I brought my camera and visited an area on the shores of the St. Lawrence River.

The area I visited (masked, physical distancing, though there was no one around) is a real migrant trap in the right season. Now, at sunset when I visited with a view to watching same, it is pretty quiet. The most entertaining thing going on was an adult beaver slapping its tail to get a juvenile out of the grasses on the shore as I approached. I sat on the shore and watched them until it began to get dark.

And after about fifteen minutes, this creature popped up. This is not a species I would likely be looking at if there were birds around, but its sudden appearance in the wild grass, and its indifference to me, made it seem more like the wild creature it is (despite the species’ appeal to young and old alike, they are as omnivorous as squirrels, and will eat young birds, for example). I liked the light, and I was already on the ground, so I rolled over and secured a few images.

I like that the common French name for them is ‘suisse’, though I have never really been satisfied with the explanation that the name derives from the Vatican Swiss Guard uniforms. More interesting is that the English name comes via the Ojibwe dialect Odawa.

And that was that for my free time in Boucherville.

The Plains Bison, like me, have this park mostly to themselves all winter. They see very few people, very few vehicles at close range. And being wild animals, their responses are unpredictable. Sometimes they will stand around and watch me slowly drive past them; that happened yesterday. Other times, such as this morning last December, they'll break into a herd-driven gallop and disappear into the hills. This group of 75 animals came over the crest of a hill, saw not one but two humans standing beside the rolling red Toyota car blind, veered away and charged down the slope, spraying snow and drumming the earth with their hooves. An exciting moment! Then they were gone.
