ONCE UPON A FROG

There’s a spot at a nearby lake where the frogs like to congregate. When we walk by it we listen for a splash and usually see a couple of frogs.  Although I’ve featured this photo before it made me smile when I came across it recently. I hope this slightly re-edited version has the same effect on you.

WINTER WOODPECKER

We’re lucky to have downy woodpeckers here all year round as most birds migrate south during the winter.  This male downy has found some insects to eat under the bark of the tree. They’re also seen more frequently at backyard feeders this time of year.

LATE SEASON DUCK

With snow in the forecast, opportunities like this are fading quickly. Taking a camera out in cold weather is a challenge.  My plan is to use my camera phone this winter to take some decent photos, I guess that means I’ll have to read the manual 😏

NOVEMBER SCENE

I  liked the partial shadow of the branches against the white wall.  Quite stark and what a typical November looks and feels like.  This year is not the usual though it’s been warm and sunny and some flowers are still in bloom.

TIME PASSAGES

This building is a landmark on a gritty downtown street corner, sandwiched between an alley and apartment building. It’s been a Bible depot, reading room and gathering place.  When trying to find out more about it, I learned that it had closed permanently. Perhaps another victim of the times.

ANGRY BIRD

We were taking photos of an adult and osprey chick on their nest at a respectful distance (with long lenses and at least 40 feet below 😏 ) but the osprey parent was not happy at all. It flew from the nest, circled above and flew uncomfortably low and close. We took the hint and walked quickly back to the car, content with the photos we had got.

Milkweed Bug (Correction)

The insect under question was misidentified as a Milkweed Beetle when first posted. (See Steve Gingold’s comment)

I was happy to get this shot so late in September as we’ve had several frost advisories at night.  The milkweed bug didn’t seem to mind though. I had also planned to take landscape shots that morning, so this wasn’t taken with my macro gear. The natural light provided this interesting effect.
