My last trip to Newfoundland was a remarkable time. Rain, fog and more rain, this trip couldn't have been better! Something about this island leaves me with many stark impressions; how can a maritime province make you feel like your in the Monteverde cloud forest in Costa Rica, and at the same time, in the deep rich forest of Maine, US. Many Canadian's say Canada has no culture......Those people need to explore the country much more!!!
It's been 2 years since my last trip to Africa and I'm still going through photos from this adventure. Africa remains everything it was in my mind before I ever went there...the glory land....the land of the giants....heaven. Someday I will be back again to re-photograph the beautiful places I was before, but until then I have amazing shots that depict my encounters very well. From the African Elephant to the strange Hoopoe, it's all here. I hope you enjoy these images as I do and someday have a chance to visit this great area of the world for the experience!
This past week was spent traveling too and through Newfoundland, Canada. The weather condition was cold and wet throughout the week which made hiking a bit of a challenge and the bird totals lower then desired. Newfoundland is a beautiful destination for the world traveler to get into the forest and experience a wealth of diversity in east coast Canada. I will highly recommend this province for anyone who has never been there and suggest to plan more then a weeks stay. Here are the bird species totals and photo gallery to follow. There were 68 species recorded over the week and a wealth of beautiful places to add to my ever growing traveling list.

As a naturalist, I spend a great amount of time in personal study. Discussion and research is key to exploring new and intelligent ideas and furthering our understanding of our natural surroundings.
