Mike shows his angelic side with this photo of the Angel Glacier in Jasper National Park. The glacier starts to appear on your right as you climb Mt. Edith Cavell. The higher you go, the better you can see the snow in the shape of an angel with her wings spread. I included a photo below if you are interested.
DID YOU KNOW? As you walk on the well-marked trail you will see glacial debris left behind by the retreating Cavell Glacier. It is easier to hike the low trail to the lake and back again. For movie history buffs – a scene was shot in this area for the 1954 movie: “The Far Country” starring James Stewart. Mount Cavell was named in honour of Edith Louise Cavell who was an English nurse. She was executed during WW I.

Such brilliance in LaVerne’s photo! A literal feast for the eyes … and a literal feast for said Painted Lady Butterfly. LaVerne writes: “To brighten a cold wintery day. I was taking picture of my sunflowers in my garden and this butterfly just happed to land for a quick pose”.
DID YOU KNOW? The lifecycle of a Painted Lady Butterfly has four stages and takes approximately 21 days. It has taste receptors on its feet that help it taste sweet liquids, and smells and feels with its antennae. It sees in several directions at any time, because its large compound eyes are made up of many smaller, six-sided eyes.

Kingsley likes to keep an eye on his dinner guests. And as any restauranteur knows, success is based on “location, location, location”. This one is great for both birds and humans. The sun was shining that morning in Lethbridge – just enough to warm the birds as they started their day.
DID YOU KNOW? If you buy a mixture of seeds, you might discover that birds will scatter most of them on the ground, trying to get at the delicious sunflower seeds. A flat platform feeder gives the fine-feathereds a place to sit ‘and’ sort. And remember, no salted seeds.

Wow! Thank you to Issraa who had his eyes to the sky AND camera close at hand. This was the spectacular start to the day in St. Albert on January 25th of this year. On that day in January, the sun slept in until almost 8:30am. Compare that to the 25th of June when the sun exploded at 5am!! I love the way the cloud deck absorbs the colours and gives us a pink, orange and purple painting with bright yellow ribbons from the sun. Check out this website to track the sunrise/sunset times in your neighbourhood: http://www.mindspring.com/~cavu/sunset.html
DID YOU KNOW? Consider this advice from the experts:
1). Always carry your camera. -Not as obvious as it sounds. Sometimes the best sunrises/sunsets happen when you least expect them.
2). Start tracking/checking the sunset/sunrise times for where you live – or where you want to capture your kodak moment. Get there at least an hour before and track the color changes as time ticks away. The best shots can happen before and after actual moment-of-sunset.
3). Check the sky for something that will reflect the sun. Clouds, buildings, people are great ‘objects’ to give your photo definition.
