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.

The Birds, Bees & Wakefield Covered Bridge


I recently visited a good friend at her home north of Gatineau, Québec, with the sole purpose of parking myself and my camera on her porch to see if I could capture a photo of a hummingbird feeding. This was my second attempt at trying to photograph a hummingbird, and with a few tricks I learned, the results improved. However, I still have a long way to go … need to learn some more tricks of the trade.

On the way back home, I decided to take a look at the covered bridge and Gatineau River just outside the town of Wakefield, Québec.

And while there, I came across this cute wee critter …
