Focus on Fauna:
Capturing wildlife in Canada, from the smallest of creatures to the largest of mammals. Example: any species of Canadian wildlife, terrestrial or marine.
Exploring the beauty of Canada’s native flora of all shapes, sizes and colours. Examples: water drop on a leaf, flower in bloom or a tree in the heart of winter.
