  • Welcome to Tammy Raybould Photography

My second post in 2 days?!  What what?!  Yes, I have more time in the summer.  Well, yes and no.  I’m rehabilitating quite a few eastern cottontails right now and I released a Snowshoe Hare a couple of weeks ago.  I bet you’d like to see pictures, right?!  Okay, next post will be of Rufus, the Snowshoe Hare.  Deal.  Back to the eastern cottontails…most of the babies are on individual syringe feeds multiple times a day, so one of the things that I love to do most in the world is taking up most of my time.  I can’t describe the emotional connection to nature that this gives me.  It’s surreal, yet grounding at the same time.

Stay hydrated on this awesomely warm summer day in Ottawa and please enjoy the pictures of these peaceful beauties that I took in the Spring.

I want to share with you my pictures of a fox release I was able to go on this past weekend.

This poor guy was found at the side of a road after, most likely, being hit by a car.  His bottom jaw was broken making him unable to chew his own food and he was probably in a lot of pain.  Rideau Valley Wildlife Sanctuary (RVWS) took him in and was able to transfer him to a larger facility near Napanee, Sandy Pines Wildlife Centre.

After surgery and lots of rehabilitation, Wylie (as he was known) was ready to be brought back to RVWS and released where he was found.

All of these photos were taken with a super duper long lens, so that the fox wasn’t too scared to come out of the crate. We must keep wildlife wild!

If you love wildlife and are looking for somewhere to donate either money or goods from their wish list, Rideau Valley Wildlife Sanctuary is a great place!

Happy Spring everyone!
