We went for a drive this morning and I dragged along my big canon rebel, you know, just in case. It was such a thrill to see a hare, a wolverine, which is part of the weasel family, and a tree full of red polls. I wasn’t able to capture the rabbit, it was just too quick and the photos of the birds are not the best. However, I wanted to share a few I managed to capture of the wolverine.

I think this guy must be a youngster. I don’t know but it was such a thrill to see.

He was moving pretty quickly
and away into the woods he goes

As you can see we’ve had a bit of snow already in these parts. Here in town it’s pretty much gone again, but these were taken outside the city where there was a bit more. I am not looking forward to winter, but maybe with a bit of luck I will get snow shoes so I can walk the trails more easily. If it means catching sight of the local wildlife, I’m willing to brave the cold.

  1. What a breath of fresh air to see this. Great capture, Carol! I am so happy for you that you were in the right place at the right time with a camera in hand (and that you shared these fantastic pics with us all). I feel such peace when I look at these photos.

      1. You’re welcome. I just came back to look at this post again. Again, I feel awash with peace as I look at them. I think that I am going to relook at these wonderful pictures every day…kind of like a daily happy moment.

    1. Winter is the safest time to walk alone on the nature trails here as the bears are hibernating then. We are fortunate to have many groomed trails through the woods. Snow shoes would be a definite asset. 🙂
