The past few weeks has had some great opportunities for photography. Look at the storm of June 19th. There was so much lightning, it was nearly impossible to miss the storm. Witnessing a storm like this can be exciting, especially for photographers, but it is important to remember that lightning storms can be extremely dangerous. If you are looking to capture your own photos of lightning, take precautions to ensure your safety.
From newborns to new animal discoveries, this week has been a great week for seeing wildlife. In this photo there two of the four beavers we found at Mission Island Marsh. These guys aren't really afraid of our presence but will let you know with that distinct tail slap when they aren't happy with what you're up to! They wander around a lot, so if you go to the marsh to see them, be patient, they will eventually show up. Behind the two beavers is a goose on her nest. We have seen one gosling from this nest so far. Speaking of goslings though, there is another goose family with a few goslings. as seen in this photo.
This past week, my wife and I went to Minneapolis, Minnesota. Besides the fact that it was a balmy 36°C by Friday, the trip was enjoyable... for us anyway. Tavish, our Scottish Terrier, couldn't disagree more. She went for her knee surgery, which was a success, but her pain is anything but.
