All really great shots! Perfect pose of the whole martin, and lighting, in #3. Like that one the best.

Thanks #3 seems to be popular

Ah, the ones at the Visitor's centre then. Also one seen at Spruce Bog Boardwalk this past week. Really like that last "perched" shot. Actually have one pretty much exactly the same as this, but from where we lived in Northern Ontario.


One thing I do like about them is how approachable they are.

Hillbillygirl I know that you know the park as I do but I am big on not pointing out just exactly where every critter is so I would appreciate you not pointing out every thing I post that I take in the park. It can only cause great harm to the animals and the people who live and work in those area's because the masses don't care about the laws of nature. So be kind to the animals in our back yard !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

These are really great, Jeff; I've had the in my yard a couple times, years ago, but that was before I had a decent camera. They are really nifty animals and quite approachable. Good for you.

Man you need to relax a little Jeff. The Park, and the employees that work/live there, post these locations on their sightings boards at the Gates, and visitors centres, along with on Facebook, and several other sites they are affiliated with. The reason they do this is to add to the draw of which is the Park itself, and give people a chance to see these animals in a natural environment. It is FAR from a big secret.
Yes, I do care about the animals in the wild, and do frequent the Park a few times a year, but I am not a big fan of the hwy #60 corridor for the people that congregate there. It always has, and always will be, the "wildlife magnet" for those looking for some easy "wildlife" shots/sightings though, and the Park really pushes this as a draw also.
Kind of like the Fox. I am actually quite glad they closed the road to this area, as every time someone would drive a car up there they come running to be fed.

Posting on a board inside the Visiter Centre is not quite the same as broad casting on the internet or I should say Facebook for the masses,..we have seen what that can do first hand. since you have joined POTN you like to jump up and down like a school girl about the where abouts of the animals I shoot in the park. And it just doesn't sit right with me. So I guess I will refrain for doing so in the future.
