On Wed April 26, we were alerted by our daughter that the Calgary Police Service Mounted Unit was on display in Garrison Square. We rushed over with our cameras and were treated to be in the Square at the end of the CPS Graduation Ceremony for one of their horses What a treat to meet “Kapyong” who had just received his Police Badge. He was joined that day by five other mounts and riders. This image features Anzio, Vimy and Dieppe —all the CPS horses are named for famous battles.

I was out for a walk in Fish Creek park with the grandkids on Saturday when they spotted a Mallard paddling furiously upstream. He really had to work hard to make progress against the current.
Aperture priority, f/3.2, 1/1250 sec, 300 mm ISO 100.

On route to Kananaskis country last Friday, we stopped by the Glenbow Ranch Provincial Park to see if the blue birds were out and about. No blue birds, but a surprising patch of crocuses blooming in the evergreens, not the grasslands where you normally find them. I only had my 600m lens on for birding so lots of backing up to frame the shot. F5 1/320 sec, ISO 640
