Fish Creek Park on New Year's Day
This evening, I decided to edit and post seven photos from today, 1 January 2019. I only took a few photos and they are really just record shots, so I thought I would get them out of the way - I need to get back to editing photos from Day 8 of our two-we…

Who made these holes?

Who made these holes?
These holes in several trees left me puzzled. They just didn't look like anything I had noticed before. Presumably they were made by some kind of Woodpecker, but I've no idea which kind. I know that the Three-toed Woodpecker "forages on live or dead co…

Happy Christmas Day!

Happy Christmas Day!
A quick posting before my computer freezes! This is one of my absolute favourite Christmas ornaments, given to me by my daughter for Christmas in 2014. It stands maybe 2" tall and is just so cute. She knows so well how crazy I am about mushrooms : ) T…

Delicate hoarfrost
Before I start on Day 7 of our two-week holiday in May 2018, I wanted to quickly add 8 photos taken the day before yesterday, 7 December 2018. I don't get over to the Inglewood Bird Sanctuary very often, but I decided to join four friends for a birding w…

Fall colours

Fall colours
I think I'm right in saying that this is Fireweed, displaying its wonderfull fall colours.

My rough plans for 29 September 2018 changed when I saw the weather forecast. I ended up visiting the Reader Rock Garden instead of driving to a different garden.…

A much-needed change of colour

A much-needed change of colour
Thinking of you Pam J : ) Hope this vibrant Peony helps to brighten your day.

This just had to be posted. My photostream had become very 'green' (my least favourite colour, I think) and a splash of vibrant colour was desperately needed! This was one o…

Lest We Forget

Lest We Forget
How important it is for us to remember those who have served their country (not just Canada) and made the ultimate sacrifice. Unfortunately, there are thousands more on this Continent and elsewhere across the globe, who have returned from fighting, only…

Harlequin Duck male

Harlequin Duck male
Taken at Focal Length (35mm format) - 2000 mm, but at least I got it : ) Not the best photo, but I rarely see a Harlequin Duck, so this was a happy sighting.

On 17 October 2018, I managed to get over to Carburn Park for a walk. Though I have seen a num…
