Incredible Wildlife Encounters

This post is dedicated to the incredible wildlife encounters I’ve caught on camera here in Canada – starting with its fauna.

Since moving to Canada I have been wide-eyed fascinated with its incredible wildlife wonders. There’s over 194 species of mammals, 426 species of birds, and not to mention reptiles, arachnids, crustaceans… Meaning you don’t have to travel far in this vast country to have a close encounter with the wild.
