Cap­tur­ing amaz­ing images of clever crit­ters that are mas­ters of dis­guise!

PRETTY LADY

Cathy Martin of Mi­ramichi, N.B., writes, “Along the banks of the Mi­ramichi River, you will find con­cerned cit­i­zens who buy the proper feed for the ducks and geese that pop­u­late our rivers and streams. This lit­tle lady sat so pret­tily be­fore me that I snapped many photos of her—this is my favourite.“

WHO’S THERE?

While hik­ing in nearby King’s For­est Park, Michael Hunter of Hamil­ton, Ont., was able to spot and snap a pic of this al­most in­vis­i­ble eastern screech owl!

QUICK LIKE A BUNNY

Julie Hayes of Chap­leau, Ont., snapped this photo near Bruce Mines, Ont. “Blend­ing into its sur­round­ings, we al­most didn’t spot this lit­tle sweet­heart,“shares Julie. “Luck­ily, it struck a pose long enough for me to cap­ture a few shots.“

STILL LIFE

Brenda Do­herty of Ariss, Ont., says, “I cap­tured this shot one beau­ti­ful morn­ing at Sny­der’s Flats in Bloom­ing­dale, Ont. I was just driv­ing in to the con­ser­va­tion area, when I spotted this deer. I stopped the car, rolled down the win­dow and quickly took a pic­ture.“

FROGS ON A LOG

Mel Diotte of Lasalle, Ont., writes, “I took this pic at Point Pelee Na­tional Park and was amazed at how many frogs were shar­ing this log. How many do you see?“

SNAP TO IT!

Brad Maloney of Clarenville, N.L., writes, “I love this photo be­cause I love ev­ery­thing to do with the sea—even the sim­plic­ity of this crab is beau­ti­ful to me. There is noth­ing more fas­ci­nat­ing than what our wa­ters hold.”

BLEND­ING IN

Leah Crump of Oko­toks, Alta., cap­tured this im­age of a huge but well-cam­ou­flaged toad while hik­ing at nearby Sheep River Falls.

BORN FREE

Ch­eryl Walsh of Mil­ton, Ont., shares this amaz­ing photo, taken in Hal­ton Hills, Ont., of a baby snap­ping tur­tle fresh out of its egg!
