Photo Scavenger Hunt – Fall 2017

On Saturday, September 30, 2017, I attended a photo scavenger hunt in the Ottawa downtown area. There was no prize for your efforts and I used the time just to explore parts of the Ottawa area around the National Gallery of Canada. These are some of the photos that I took during my 3 or 4 hours of exploration.

Birds & Bees … and other stuff

Recently, I had the opportunity to spend a week at the home of some friends who live in the countryside of Eastern Ontario. During one of my days there, I walked around the property with my camera and telephoto lens and was able to take photos of some busy bees and hummingbirds, as well as some flowers that I liked, a few dragonflies, one of my favourite members of the insect world and some butterflies and a ladybug.

I also came across this flower. I have no idea what it is, but the shape made me wonder if it originated on the Muppet Show.
