Timber Wolf

The timber wolf is found throughout Ontario and Quebec but is more plentiful in the north areas.  They usually live in packs of up to 8 wolves with one alpha male, one alpha female and a number of younger wolves.  Only the alpha's mate and produce offspring. This photograph was taken with my Canon 7D camera and my 400 mm lens.  The shutter speed was set at 1/800 second, the aperture as set at f5.6 and the ISO was set at 125.

Osprey in Flight!

After a long summer of photographing a family of osprey on the banks of the Rideau River, I managed to capture this shot of an osprey soaring through the air with his wings spread wide and his piercing yellow eyes fixated on his target.  The osprey's beautiful colouring on his wings, head and body are highlighted in the bright blue sky.  This photography was taken with my Canon 7D camera and a 400 mm telephoto lens.  The aperture was set to f6.3 , ISO was set to 200 and the shutter speed was set at 1/1600 second to freeze the motion of the wings.
