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.

Sunday Drive – Renfrew & Burnstown (August 14, 2016)


On Sunday, August 14, 2016, my friend Elizabeth and I went for a drive through the Renfrew county countryside – she was prospecting for interesting minerals, and I wanted to take pictures. Our first stop was at the Renfrew town suspension bridge, so that we could poke among the river rocks. Because of the recent drought, we were able to walk on the large boulders in the middle of the river, and I was able to get these photos from a location, which is typically covered by water.

From Renfrew, we drove to the large rock cut just east of the bridge in Burnstown. While Elizabeth looked for minerals in the rock face, I snapped these photos of the Madawaska River.

It was one of those cool, dull and overcast days, but the day wasn’t without colour …
