I like watching Olympics :) I actually never watched downhill skiing on TV before... different than when you actually taking photos... Here is a photo of Lindsey Vonn that I took at Lake Louise a few month ago :)
Lynx seem to do one of two things on the very rare times that I have managed to see one. They either trot off into the woods, not to be seen again for weeks, or they sit around uncaring as to my presence for a few minutes, and then trot off into the woods not to be seen again for weeks. I have never seen an adult Lynx run. They are cats, and just don't get that excited.

Bear cub 1 salmon 0 .... It's amazing to watch a mother bear teach her cubs how to fish. The first time we saw her bring the cubs to the river they didn't quite know what they were supposed to be doing. Then they got a taste for salmon.
We watched the cubs many times paw at the water or jump at the salmon trying to be like mama. However at this age they were too young to catch such a heavy fish.
Time for their next lesson... on this particular day mama brought the twins a salmon except this time the fish was still alive. She promptly dropped it off then walked away to catch another. The salmon was flailing back and forth in the pile of leaves, both cubs seemed spooked by the quick movement of the fish, Spirit ran to mama unsure what to do next.
But Sawyer was much better at passing mama's lessons than his sister. He put his paws on the fish trying to keep it from moving which must have been tough for a young cub.
He finally got one of the fins in his teeth and held on for dear life while the salmon continued to struggle. In the end the salmon met it's demise and the cubs learned another valuable lesson about fishing.
Unfortunately after passing part 1 of the lesson he failed the next test as he couldn't figure out how to tear the fish open and eat it without mama's help...
It was 12:30am and I was fully tucked into bed after 13 hours of shooting up north when I saw the northern lights radar indicating that they might be visible. I hummed and hawed but ultimately got out of bed, put on my sweats and this ladies @canadagoose jacket I borrowed from work and hit the road. Not at all did I expect this to happen✨ #WHPmoveit#yescanada
