FLOWER POWER (TWO PHOTOGRAPHS)

Field flowers-2When I was a kid at summer camp we used to call hawkweed (above) the devil’s paintbrush. Both are common names for this attractive flower although the latter appealed more to the imagination of ten year olds! I don’t think I really took notice of the yellow salsify before I picked up a camera. It was while composing in camera and in the editing that I began to appreciate the flower’s detail and form.

GROUNDHOG

GroundhogA bit late for a Groundhog Day post and too early to spot one out of its den. Groundhogs hibernate until March or April in our climate. No friend to farmers or gardeners as their burrowing can do serious damage and they like to feed off crops. They are cute rodents though and are funny when they freeze in plain sight as this one did.

CHICKADEE (TWO PHOTOGRAPHS)

Chickadee

This photo was taken a few years ago in Spring. The trees are not in bud yet. They’re still covered in snow but we’ve turned the corner on winter; the sun’s a little warmer and the temperatures not quite as cold. As I’ve mentioned before, chickadees remain here year round and they too must be anticipating the warmer days to come.

A SURE SIGN

GOSLING

It’ll be a while before we see goslings or any other signs of spring.  Looking through my catalogues I came across this photo, I took it on a June day a few summers ago.  This gosling strayed a little from its parent and gave me this measured look.
