AROUND THE CORNER (TWO PHOTOGRAPHS)

Easter Island Head_-2I didn’t have to travel far to see this Easter Island statue. In fact it was the first of several replicas I saw in this downtown neighbourhood. I had to smile when I saw it peering over the grass as I approached the house.

IT’S ALL RELATIVE (TWO PHOTOGRAPHS)

Vole

This cute little rodent is a relative of the mouse and is commonly called a vole or field mouse. It’s the only one I’ve ever seen and I was able to take a number of photographs as he was unaware of or unconcerned by my presence.  He might have been a young animal that had not yet developed a sense of fear. I watched him for a while and then left him to his ramble.

CHICKADEE CHEER (TWO PHOTOGRAPHS)

I always look out for these birds on my walks through the woods. They’re usually found along the path often flying away just as you put the camera up to your eye. These photos were taken in the spring and summer but chickadees are around all year and a little easier to photograph in the winter when they’re looking to be fed.

SERVING OF SUMMER (TWO PHOTOGRAPHS)

I live in Ottawa, the capitol city that is often ranked the coldest in the world. It’s hard to believe that only a few short months ago the nearby fields were covered in flowers. Here’s a sweet reminder of what’s to come.

TOP OF THE WORLD (TWO PHOTOGRAPHS)

Nothing compares with ducks for their natural enthusiasm! Ducks appear frequently on my blog and mallards most often, as they are the most common duck (and bird) in this area. We have more exotic avian visitors during the warmer months but for dependability, good looks and charm mallards are my pick.

GIVE ME A BEE

I featured this bee on my blog earlier in the year, although this is a different image. Opportunities for photos like these are scarce these days, given it’s -21C with windchill! It’s going to be a long winter………….
