Browsing photos on a rainy Saturday and put together this post on animal portraits

Loyalist of Lochiel: I met Loyalist on a drive-about a few years ago, on Lochiel Road.

Magoo: A lady who rescued parrots brought some of her birds to our house one day.


Guy: Another rescued parrot. This image received Special Recognition in the Light, Space & Time Art Exhibition, Patterns 2020, from among 842 entries from 25 countries.


The Seal of Mordreuc: Mordreuc is a village on the Rance River in Brittany, France. On a jetty on the beach a visitor would find this seal basking in the sun. She made it into the guidebooks and if you google her you will find many photos of her. I took this shot in 2008.

Wolves: Taken in Parc Omega.


Lunch Time: Taken at the Biodome in Montreal.


 Parking Spot: Raven at rest.

Treed Duck: I believe this to be a black-bellied whistling duck, shot in Mexico.
