Wild Canadians

Just in case you thought I was referring to some of the folks you knew back in your high school or university days....relax. Nor am I going to delve in your own past as a possible wild Canadian :-).

As we celebrate Canada's 150th birthday milestone and head into the next number of years, we are constantly reminded about our society's diversity. This post will feature some of my favourite wild Canadians...those native denizens of this wonderful country many readers will call home. (Please note that although the common names of some of these critters are 'American' such and such, they are all Canadian at least for part of the year, and were photographed in Canada.)
