Barred at Night

Our Barred Owl (aka Bob) returned last night
As I'm sure he has many a night.
To apply his stealth hunt in our yard, so quiet a patient.
My flash only shortly disturbed his concentration
we always know when he is successful
as he leaves wing prints n the snow with just a hint of blood.

Ottawa Abstracts

A trip this past weekend to visit my brother and family.
Outside Ottawa was the scene and hundreds of family shots!
However I found interest on each visit to the front yard..
These are the most interesting, all very abstract, or as the other artist in my family
very artsie fartsie!

February Rain

A very uncommon event at this time of the year
Colour is rare in late winter
So i give you the originals
They do however make great black & whites

Winter Sunset

A winter sunset through maple trees
 high lighting the Russian Bamboo in my
back yard
I like the contrast in colours in the background.

Split Personality

All bright and sunny
but a little dark and furious?

Playing with sunlight!
Right wall 6ft closer than the left

Barred Portraits

Our Barred Owl appeared today in the back yard
Sitting still on our laundry pole, with his intense eyes
searching for rodents under the bird feeders
When I first opened a window for these shots
we shared a staring contest...he won!
This is by far the best view of an Owl you may ever see.
I had to back up my telephoto to get these!

From nature and back...Almost

From nature came a farmers field
then came The Muskoka Highlands Golf Course
and the golfers were smart to leave behind pieces of the natural and farmlands history
This is a Savannah Sparrow with farming history just off the 9th hole

Muskoka Sunsets

Now that we are in the early stages of February
The most bleak of the winter months
I offer some summer sunsets
something to look forward to!
