Jess Findlay  24 | Nature Photographer | Vancouver, BC, Canada • Follow my travels as I explore wild places seeking wildlife.

Low tide along the shores of Vancouver Island's Clayoquot Sound reveals a bounty of food for this young Black Bear. True omnivores, this individual happily munched away on barnacles foraged from a log. If you'd like to see these beautiful animals for yourself, talk to the good people at @tofinowhalecentre

A male Tree Swallow pauses momentarily before entering his nest cavity in a trembling aspen. Without a strong beak, Tree Swallows are unable to construct their own nests, relying on woodpeckers to excavate these cavities. During a recent spring, this particular nest was home to a family of Red-naped Sapsuckers, having since been reclaimed by this iridescent beauty. Photographed during our recent Manning Park Photo Workshop in the Cascade Mountains of British Columbia.

I'm currently up in beautiful Manning Provincial Park in British Columbia's Cascade Mountains, leading my annual photo workshop alongside @connorstefanison . Nursing a broken collarbone, my time behind my own camera has been very limited, so here are a few from last year! Have a favourite?

Moments after a heavy rainstorm in the cloud forest of Ecuador, a Velvet-purple Coronet perches on a mossy twig. This spectacular hummingbird remains one of my favourite birds; boasting an amazing palette of iridescent colour!

The life of a loon chick...

Tearing small pieces of meat from a Snowshoe Hare, a mother Great Grey Owl prepares to feed one of its young. Photographing several nesting pairs of these spectacular birds this spring in the Interior of British Columbia was one of the highlights of my photography career.

Sunday mornings...

Wishing all of my Canadian followers a Happy Canada Day! We're very fortunate to live in a country with incredible areas of wilderness where iconic wildlife like this loon family can flourish. Let's do all we can to keep it this way!

Though I've been greeted unexpectedly by the powerful stare of a Great Grey Owl many times now, it never gets any less exciting. There's something about these birds and their deep forest homes that will always be very important to me.
