You've got a clever granddaughter. Lovely pictures which convey the atmosphere beautifully. How close were you to the eagle, hawk and wildcat on pictyres 5,6 and 3? what are the settings for the shots, anddid you use a tele lens or just the camera zoom?

you are lucky to have such a place near home

all the best

Very nice. It looks like you nailed the exposue on these, too. Not easy with all that white snow, fur and feathers!

Rov: Thanks for looking and commenting. The camera was set at: ISO 100 and aperture priority, (the camera selected the shutter speed). The distance for the eagle and hawk pics was 30 ft, approximately; Aperture:f5.6. The distance for the bobcat shotwas 10ft.approximately. Camera zoom only. Hope this helps.

RedStckMan, thanks for your kind words. Yes, it was difficult to get decent exposures due to the weather and surroundings, (snow, sun, clouds,extreme cold, numb fingers and toes, lol).

I would be out at that nature park every day if I could get shots like that Emmanuel. You must have been very pleased.

I'm very pleased with the results Ted. This Nature Park is a gem! Its a huge area at the end of the island and belongs to one of the biggest Universities in Montreal. I can't wait for spring/summer!

These are all nice. I like that turkey and the Painted Turtle as those are some of my favorite critters.
