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.

2014 Weekly Photos – Week #04 (January 22, 2014)


This week’s photos are brought to you by the letter “D” for “Dragonflies”.

Dragonflies … I’m not sure why, but I am fascinated by these wee creatures. They come in so many shapes, sizes and colours, and I enjoy watching them fly and hover, like a large double-prop Sikorsky helicopter.
