Happy Canada Day to all Canadians around the world!
Happy Birthday Canada ! / Bonne Fête du Canada !
Canada Day celebrates the birthday of Canada. On July 1, 1867 Canada became a new federation with its own constitution by signing the Constitution Act - formerly known as the British North America Act. Canada Day is a national statutory holiday celebrated in all provinces and territories.
My favorite photography subject is mountain peaks and the special ecosystems that they create. IMHO few places provide such a wealth of stunning beauty and frequent photo opps as the Canadian Rockies, in Alberta and British Columbia.
Here we have a view looking northwest at Mount Athabasca (of the famous glacier) and Hilda Peak. Just one example of what one finds along the Icefields Parkway between Banff and Jasper.
Thanks for taking a peek at these peaks!
Have a wonderful weekend!
I watched these geese gathering and feeding on one of the lagoons at the Lymington Reserve, Hampshire. The sun was disappearing fast behind the trees at this point and then the whole flock took to the air to make their way to the main lake.

The Canada goose (Branta canadensis) is a large wild goose species with a black head and neck, white cheeks, white under its chin, and a brown body. Native to arctic and temperate regions of North America, its migration occasionally reaches northern Europe.
Thanksgiving (French: Action de grâce), or Thanksgiving Day (Jour de l'action de grâce) is an annual Canadian holiday, occurring on the second Monday in October, which celebrates the harvest and other blessings of the past year. On January 31, 1957, a proclamation was issued stating Thanksgiving was to be "A Day of General Thanksgiving to Almighty God for the bountiful harvest with which Canada has been blessed." [...]
While the actual Thanksgiving holiday is on a Monday, Canadians may gather for their Thanksgiving feast on any day during the long weekend. Foods traditionally served at Thanksgiving include roasted turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes with gravy, sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce, sweet corn, various fall vegetables (mainly various kinds of squashes but also Brussels sprouts), and pumpkin pie. Baked ham and apple pie are also commonly served, as well as regional dishes such as salmon or wild game. Wikipedia
Enjoy your Thanksgiving Weekend!
From another Canadian:
"I love being Canadian. I think growing up in Canada gives you a world perspective that I certainly enjoy."

Thanks for your visit and taking the time to comment with TEXT ONLY OR SMALL PHOTO/COMMENT AWARD, so I can visit your photos, too... very much appreciated!
Canada geese use both body language and honking sounds to communicate with each other. Ten different sounds have been identified.
Since the adults are large and able to defend themselves, they don't have many natural enemies. The goslings are another story. Snapping turtles, owls, and hawks find the goslings make for good eating. Raccoons and bears will hunt for nests and make a meal of unhatched eggs.
These geese mate for life and are very devoted to each other. If one is injured the other will stay by its side, even if the flock flies to another destination. It's not known for certain if when a goose loses his mate he picks another mate.
Because of the large population of geese they will sometimes invade public places such as parks and golf courses to find food and shelter.

Canada Place is a building situated on the Burrard Inlet waterfront of Vancouver, British Columbia. It is the home of the Vancouver Convention Centre, the Pan Pacific Vancouver Hotel, Vancouver's World Trade Centre. The five white sails atop Canada Place have been a Canadian icon, a recognizable landmark around the world since 1986, that identifies the Vancouver waterfront and Canada. The 90 foot sails are made of Teflon coated fibreglass. I added a texture from Parée.
