I was really amazed that these pictures turned out as clearly as they did. They were taken from a boardwalk not under water, with an ordinary camera and lens.
The Longnose Gar is Quebec’s only gar species. It is a long, cylindrical, predatory fish, easily recognized by its long, narrow snout.
This gar is a primitive fish that is armored with large ganoid scales.
This species can gulp air at the surface enabling it to survive in poor quality habitats such as stagnant ponds and canals that are characterized by low oxygen conditions
Distribution of the Longnose Gar in Quebec:
I can now be found by searching for Arche Medas – google+ and for myspiritsview.blogspot.com. By going to either site you will be able to view:
- Pictures and newly introduced video clips of nature as seen through my cameras lens.
- Pictures of both the famous and not so famous historical buildings and structures found in Quebec and Southern Ontario both famous and the not so famous.
Hope to see you there and have a great summer!
