MORE DUCKS (TWO PHOTOGRAPHS)

These photos were taken in October at different locations. The first by the river’s edge with low lying vegetation, the second photo of the mallard and his American black duck friend in a forest setting. In the first there is no mistaking the subject, in the second I believe the ducks share the stage with the brilliant fall reflections.

TURN OF TURTLES (THREE PHOTOGRAPHS)

Painted turtles are common and widespread in our region. We usually see them sunning themselves along with their buddies in mid Spring, as soon as the sun gains some heat. They’re hibernating now, nestled deep in the mud of local ponds. I look forward to seeing them again in a couple of months.

AMERICAN GOLDFINCH

The goldfinch was moving between the late Fall sunflowers, feeding as it went. It seemed to have the field to itself as I saw no other birds around. It was quite acrobatic, most times balancing upside down. I was pleased to get this shot right-side up in perfect natural light.

BIG CHILL (THREE PHOTOGRAPHS)

As the temperature continues to drop, photos like these bring summer back. So much cheerier than the view outside my window of drifting snow and icy streets. If the temperature gets above zero anytime soon I’ll venture out with my camera; too cold right now for it or me.

A G&T KIND OF DAY (TWO PHOTOGRAPHS)

Geese and turtles that is. This old tree still attracts wildlife during the warmer months. Ducks, turtles and geese swim over and sit a while. Though not much of the tree is left standing I love it’s graceful silver arch. I’ve always known it in this spot and hope it continues to stand and provide enjoyment to visitors and wildlife well into the future.

CHICKADEE (TWO PHOTOGRAPHS)

This chickadee was completely in the open and happy to remain so for a few minutes. There was a good distance between the bird and the trees which made for an attractive background. However, judging by the bird’s expression in the second photo, perhaps there was not enough distance between him and me!

OBSERVATIONS IN BLACK AND WHITE (TWO PHOTOGRAPHS)

Walking down a city laneway I wasn’t expecting to see this tin man on someone’s back stoop and stopped to take a picture. It seemed rather out of place and yet where wouldn’t it be. The art cube was one of several photographs I took last spring of similar art work. I think it’s probably disguising some city maintenance work, an attractive idea and use of artistic talent.
