Sunday shots

First thing this morning I visited a friend's farm as a little birdie told me there was a family of geese being raised on the flooded corner of a field.  This is the same farm that used to be home to a Great Blue Heron rookery.  I was able to catch a quick photo before Ma, Pa and their six offspring disappeared into the trees.

While it looks quiet in this photo, the air was alive with the sound of bird calls and songs.

This afternoon we drove to London to check on the Osprey nest.  As we pulled up to take photos this Groundhog was checking out the activity on the nearby golf course.

Clarke was likely off fishing for lunch but we found Lois settled down on the nest with a House Sparrow nearby - luckily he's not a likely candidate for lunch or a snack.

And, finally, this was the last shot I took before we left to head home.  An absolute fluke, but it looks like the middle golfer is teeing off from the top of the sign :-) .


  1. What a delightful outing - and that final photo is a hoot.
    Is that a lone tulip standing sentinel in the second photo?

    1. Yes, that is a lone tulip - you're very observant! I think maybe it's one a squirrel uprooted and moved. It does set the scene off quite nicely, doesn't it?

  2. I like the dash of red, from the flower, in the second image. Lovely greens!

    1. Hi Mersad! I think a squirrel may have replanted that tulip there :-)
