END OF SEASON (TWO PHOTOGRAPHS)

Mallard 2Most ducks have left our rivers and lakes as the water begins to freeze. A few mallards remain by the open water in a reserve we visit but the majority have left for the season. These photos were taken a month ago when the fall colours were at their height.Mallard

ON THE WATER’S EDGE (TWO PHOTOGRAPHS)

Sparrows

I watched the sparrow as it paused on the edge of the pond and then walked about. This pond is a favourite of frogs too and attracts other birds and insects during the course of the summer. The sparrow is an energetic little bird with striking colouring. Always fun to photograph.

LATE OCTOBER (TWO PHOTOGRAPHS)

Late OctoberSince I took this photo, we’ve had snow, freezing rain and a week of -C temperatures. The weather has moderated a bit but scenes like this are over until next year. Thank goodness for my photo catalogues where I can retrieve sights like these.

GREAT BLUE HERON (TWO PHOTOGRAPHS)

GBHWe didn’t see many Great Blue Herons this year and they tended to fish at quite a distance. I had to crop the photo but was rewarded by some pretty spectacular reflections and lighting.

‘BYE BUTTERFLY

Swallowtail I saw the last swallowtails of the year in August although other butterflies were still around until early October. A very good year for them all. The swallowtail made picture taking very easy as it lingered on the Joe Pye weed, a plant they love.
