.. in search of the elusive

Something I love to do in order to find the wildlife photo ops I seek. I take regular daytrips into the foothills which lie at the foot of the Rocky Mountain Range that straddles the border of British Columbia and Alberta. The landscape is rolling and rugged, and well treed once you get into these hills. It provides a haven for migratory birds on their journey to and from the northwestern reaches of the continent.

This was a lucky encounter on my way to the hills last October.

Special Thanks to Michele for nominating me for member of the week.. much appreciated Michele!
