If you haven't heard of Aaron Blanshard, wildlife photographer, this will be a pleasant surprise for you!
For the past several years, I have known a family from London, Ontario, who home educate their children, but in the past year or so I have become aware that not only are their kids a great group of young people, but they are, each in their own way, gifted.
This section of my website will focus on the art of Aaron who is an amazing Wildlife Photographer, as you will soon see!
Aaron was a nominee in the Canadian Geographic Photography Competition in 2013, with several of his photographs being featured
My favourite pictures are below ...
Here is the young photographer, holding one of his subjects!
This is a charming photograph of a fawn on a muskrat lodge
I think it is amazing that this young man is able to approach this small creature with such calm and quiet, and without startling it, take several pictures that have such beauty and charm.
Who knows how long he had to sit, quietly and stealthily, waiting to get this shot! Just look at the intricate pattern of veins in the ear of the rabbit.
Another wonderful shot - the result of a great deal of time waiting and watching.
Another one of my favourites! This Great Blue Heron looks like he was waiting to be photographed!
How adorable is this! Aaron Blanshard, this is a great picture - these turtles look like they were posing for you!
Astounding picture! If you look closely, you can see the individual feathers around the eyes of this Owl.
I believe this picture of a female Snowy Owl was taken between London and St Thomas, Ontario ..... these birds winter in this area of the province before returning to the North when the weather warms. They hunt during the day, which is perhaps an adaptation to the long days of the Arctic Summer.
11" x 14" copies of these, and other Wildlife photographs by Aaron Blanshard, can be purchased for $20.00 Canadian dollars. Please use the form below to inquire about the availability of prints and the cost of postage.

We saw this hawk on the back deck today. We are thinking it's an immature Cooper's Hawk but aren't quite sure. We would love to know what you all think.
