Some birds and beasts:
Posted By: Tom Lusk, 04-12-2008, 08:04 AM

It's nice to see some of the creatures showing up after having been hidden away for the winter. Here are a few recent shots:

A river otter (shot just at dusk resulting in the odd colours)

A raccoon shot from my bedroom window:

A pair of common mergansers taken when out on the St. Lawrence River this week:

A strange squirrel that turned nasty on me - full frame:

A goose that had been searching for a nesting site:

I just love this time of year!

Thanks for all the feedback. Lens used was my trusty FA*300 for all these.

The squirrel is almost full frame. He did make three attempts to, uh, discourage me, but his aim was off, fortunately.

James- the mergansers were not fighting, they were courting (sometimes it's hard to tell the difference)
