FEATURED PHOTOGRAPHERS…6 July 2012

The World As We See It , or as we missed it…16 June 2012

The Canvasback is a very good flier and can reach speeds of up to 70 mph.
One of the largest North American diving ducks, it gets its name from its pale gray back and white sides which are delicately dotted and lined in a wavelike pattern resembling canvas fabric. Because they strain many seeds with their bill out of bottom mud, they ingest much lead shot and are especially affected by lead poisoning in areas that are heavily hunted.

A self taught amateur photographer who resides in beautiful Winnipeg, Manitoba, which is a prairie city in the center of Canada. My dear wife Marg and I have been married for 52 years, and we have 2 married daughters and 3 grandchildren to share our busy lives.I love to read, practice photography, spend time with my family, play around on the computer, and volunteer a lot of my time at our local Nature Center, where I serve as an interpreter for kids programs.
