Doctor gone wild
Wildlife Photographer of the Year at Toronto's Royal Ontario Museum
A Canadian MD was named the Wildlife Photographer of the Year (WPY) this past September. Dr Don Gutoski, an accident and emergency physician from London, Ontario, beat out over 42,000 entries from 96 countries in a competition that’s now in its 51st year and one of the most prestigious in the world. Taken at Wapusk National Park in Cape Churchill, Manitoba where the range of the red fox and the more northern Arctic fox overlap, A Tale of Two Foxes took Dr Gutoski three hours to nab in -30°C temperatures. The picture will be on view at the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) in Toronto, November 21 through March 20, 2016. The exhibit will also feature 100 short listed and winning images, including one by Connor Stefanison from Vancouver, BC and another by 10-year-old Josiah Launstein from Pincher Creek, Alberta. Dr Gutoski will be at the ROM on January 28, 2016 for a lecture and exclusive WPY tour. Adults $24; kids 4 to 14 $21. tel: (416) 586-8000; rom.on.ca.
