    Default Gros Cap

    I took a ride out to Gros Cap a couple weeks ago, and came back with a number of photos that I'm very happy with. I haven't posted much lately, so I thought I'd share a a few of them here.

    Really nice I love taking photos and was wondering where you got the foxes? I tried at whitefish but only ever get his butt lol.
    When I was born I was so surprised I didnít talk for a year and a half.

    Mimi - Thank you
    Grey_Wolf - All my fox photos are from the Soo Canal, using a friends Nikon 200-400mm f/4 lens. Having the extra reach definitely helps.

    Nice cam!

    So that would be somewhere similar as whitefish? I'm using a canon 30D with a sigma 70-200 f2.8 It would be nice to have more zooooom lol..I normally see the fox in the morning on a trail, and then he scoots into the bush. I wish I knew where he goes regularly lol.

    i think those gros cap photos are just wonderful. gotta go look at the rest now, check for new ones...

    edited to add: 2 cool abandoned mines close by, jardin or jardun and tribag. probablly need a 4 wheeler. oh, and the drive along the batchewanna river in the fall going into tribag is breathtaking.

    you take incredible photos. they are the photos that i wish i could take/make.

    Not quite on the Island... Just by the old house at the Locks. I haven't been back there in a number of weeks, but I hear that there isn't much activity at that den anymore. I heard there were a few other dens around there, and on the Island, but no idea where.

    My normal lens is the Nikon 70-200 f/2.8, and I'm finding it a little short for natural wildlife shots. After using my friend's 200-400 f/4, I'm definitely interested in adding one to my collection (eventually).

    Thanks kitca. I wish I had a 4-wheeler, as there are so many crazy places to visit that I just can't get to. There's a few places up in the Batchewana area that I've been wanting to visit, including the falls along Tribag, as well as Batchewana Mountain. Perhaps this fall. Thanks again.

    you can drive to the falls along the tribag road, they are only a few miles in and the road is good enough. put it on your list to do, you wont be disappointed.
