The bush beside the cottage lane on a rainy morning.
Beside the back stairs at the cottage.
Green Day reflections.
Beside Lake Nosbonsing Road in East Ferris Township.
The next generation of ducks is in the good hands of mom.
It’s really all about habitat.
And competition among species.
Our chainsaws will kill a tree faster than a cormorant, but the tree is just as dead.
The young eagles in the nest are getting close to becoming independent.
Testing of wings and balance is part of the training.
In this part of the world we don’t see many bald eagles but there is a family on Lake Nosbonsing. The nest has two young eagles that look almost ready to fledge. Mom and dad are busy providing the necessities of life for the young birds.
Mom put up with me for a couple of minutes the other day but her patience wore thin and she took off.
Late June and early July are colourful times around here.
Ditches become gardens of subtle beauty.
Rainy morning view down a cottage lane.
Just enjoying a lazy summer morning.
Ho Hum, what to do next?
This summer’s crop has arrived.
Always elegant whenever they appear.
Young ducklings follow mother with great precision.
As time passes the youngsters get more independent, but for now, bravery takes second seat.
Birdsfoot trefoil grows in yellow abundance along the shoulders of our roads at this time of year.
The plant was used at one time as feed for livestock.
Little white stars by the road.
