2014 is shaping up to be a big year filled with changes (if all goes according to plan), so how better to document it than by starting a new project? In 2012 I did a Project 366, where I took and uploaded a photo for every day of the year. (You can view it from the start here, or see the highlights reel here.) For 2014 I’m planning to do something a little more modest - Project 52, where I’ll be sharing my best photo of every week on my Projects account, Photobiophilia Projects. The best of the best will also end up here. You’re invited to follow that account and join me for the upcoming year!

The theme for 2014’s Project 52 is Life.

Releasing a Red-throated Loon (Gavia stellata).

This loon was brought it to Wild at Heart Wildlife Refuge Centre after being found in a smelter. It was in good shape, but was stranded on land. After monitoring it a couple of days, we released it and let it continue its migration.

(Note the lack of any red on its throat - this is their non-breeding plumage.)

Young raccoons are very intelligent, inquisitive animals. The world is their playground, and they’re endlessly fascinated by unfamiliar things. All they want in life is to sniff, pat and gnaw on new things.

CTRL - to make smaller.
