- Hummingbird - Hummingbirds are spectacularly skilful fliers, both capable of hovering and changing direction in midflight. As well, their wings beat at an incredible 55-75 beats per second, an almost impossibly fast action. Hummingbirds are only found in the Americas and when Spanish explorers first encountered hummingbirds in the New World they called them "Joyas Voladoras". I believe this is the perfect name for the hummingbird for the translation means "flying jewels”!
- Husky Racing - Every winter, Yukoners avidly follow the progress of the dog teams participating in our world famous Yukon Quest. In the Yukon's past, however, the people of the north befriended the husky and relied heavily on it for survival. This image shows the oldest of friendships, the one between humans and dogs.
- Wolf - One winter afternoon I caught sight of a lone wolf while driving. Slowing to a halt, I watched him walking in the snow, he stopped and looked directly at me before going on at the same pace. The pure confidence in his gaze made me fully understand why the wolf is so loved and respected.
