  Recent Canada Nature:

One of the things I was looking forward to doing when I got back to Canada was taking photographs of Ontario's wildlife. Tokyo doesn't have much in the way of wild animals, unless you consider pigeons, crows and cockroaches exciting photography subjects. Anyway I've been back for a month now and haven't been disappointed. Here are some of the more common, and easily seen, subjects around me:

Name: Eastern Cottontail Rabbit
Location: My backyard

Name: Least Chipmunk

Unfortunately no beavers were sighted outside these dams, although I tried to canoe up quietly...

It was nice to be able to put my 80-200mm lens to good use as I never had much chance to use it in Tokyo. Hopefully I'll have an opportunity to photograph some larger, rarer animals next time.
