Visit to a Country Garden


Some friends and I had an opportunity to visit eastern Ontario mutual friends this past weekend. As usual, my camera was slung over my shoulder, and I spent some time wandering around the property and gardens taking snaps of anything that caught my interest. The photos in this album are the ones I decided to keep.

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.
