Just thought I would post an off-topic topic!- off work today and I loiter around here a fair bit despite not being able to sell here anymore. Though to be honest- since I moved, I’ve not got myself fully set up yet anyway! I’ve just been getting little bits and pieces as I have seen them.
But now I have a job (which I love) and it’s part time- so hoping to really focus my mind and get some artwork made soon enough!!
We’ve been spending a lot of time outdoors- haven’t really spent a lot of time in the mountains yet but thought I’d share some photos- they’ve all been taken within the city- most downtown in the busiest part!- (I’m in Calgary, Alberta for those who don’t know)
A porcupine if you can see him!- photo taken in Nose Hill park a short walk from our house.
A woodpecker- there’s several different kinds!
We’ve seen several coyotes close by our house. Though this one was taken in Fish Creek in the south of the city.
Taken last night downtown by the river- I made plenty squirrel friends.
Where we live is surrounded by Snowshoe hares. So fun watching them all! They’re losing their winter coats now. They were bright white in the middle of winter.
And last night we saw a beaver!! There’s signs of them everywhere along the river- they just fell trees constantly! But we didn’t manage to see one until last night! Right in the middle of downtown just sitting chewing a stick!
We also saw hundreds of Richardson’s Ground squirrels the other day- they’re often called gophers though strictly speaking they’re not. Couldn’t get any photos though- they’re too fast! But it’s a sure sign everything is coming out of hibernation so looking forward to getting into the mountains very soon for more photo opportunities! We have migration to look forward to as well from May- though some things have started to show up early.
The Canada geece are everywhere too! Fighting/partnering up!
I’m on Instagram: @curiousseagull where I post a lot of photos for anyone interested.
Hope you all have a good day and don’t mind me sharing!!
