Wildlife Pics from the Napanee Conservation Area

Napanee, Ontario


Welcome Back!

It seems like I haven't posted in awhile, as I've been busy creating greeting cards-my creative mojo was on overdrive, so I had to go with it! :-)

This week I have pics from the Napanee Conservation, including the Great Blue Heron, some wildflowers, baby ducks and some turtles soaking up the sun!

Not sure what I will highlight next...probably the same sort of pics, just on a different day...:-)

Have a great week!

Even MORE Great Blue Heron Pics

Napanee, ON

 Welcome Back!

This week I have even more pics of the Great Blue Heron from the Napanee Conservation Area...You do remember I said he was a favourite of mine, don't you? Anyway, I am almost done the pics of him from this one visit! Not sure what will be up next..maybe I'll throw in some pics from our new home in Grand Manan, not pics of our house, but pics of the whales...Kevin went whale watching in August with my brother-in-law, who was here visiting and they got a bunch of great pics! I'll show them off soon!

Anyway, here are some of the great blue heron in the meantime...I'll have a few more next week and then something different!

Have a great week!

Even MORE Great Blue Heron Pics

Napanee, ON

 Welcome Back!

This week I am continuing with photos from May 2015 of the Great Blue Heron that is found at the Napanee Conservation Park waterfall.

The first few pics show him with ruffled feathers...he does this every now and again..maybe he has an itch or something! He looks so much bigger and fluffier when he does it.

The rest of pics are some of him watching for fish or catching fish...Or the fish jumping into his mouth.

This week has been busy as I finally finished organizing my craft studio and then started my Christmas cards. Lots of fun! I can't believe summer is almost over and school starts next week!

Have a great week!

More Great Blue Heron Photos

Napanee, Ontario


Welcome back!

This week I have more pics of one of my favourite birds....The Great Blue Heron. This guy is found a lot of the time at the bottom of the waterfalls at the Napanee Conservation Park from spring to late fall.

In most of these pics, he's doing his favourite past time--fishing for food! He must have really good eyes to be able to catch some of these little fish with the water swirling all around.

Well, Kevin started work this last week...yep, he got bored!...I'm looking, but haven't found anything yet. 

I'm still organizing things in my craft room and in the house, so we went to Saint John yesterday to pick up more organizers, etc. 

More heron shots next week. Have a great week!

I'm Back!! With MORE Heron Photos

Napanee, Ontario

Welcome back!
 
We moved across 2 provinces with minimal issues...the normal glitches that come up when you haven't moved in 30 years! :-) I should have written a book on all the things we learned--dos and don'ts! 

I'm finally unpacked for the most part and ready to continue updating this wonderful blog...

Here are more pics of the Great Blue Heron found near the waterfalls at the Napanee Conservation Park! I will definitely miss this little guy! I do have lots of pictures of him to show off though!

Here are some of my favourite....more next week!

Have a great week!

More Great Blue Heron

Napanee, Ontario


Welcome back!

Sorry for the delay in posting, life got a bit busy for awhile.

After our trip down east, we put our house up for sale and it sold within a week! Yikes, so now what? We ended up making another trip down east in May to look at the houses available and found one and made an offer, so we've been busy getting ready to move, which we will do mid-July. I recently quit my job to focus on getting stuff packed and whatnot...

Anyway, things might be a bit calmer now that I am not working full time!

This week I have some more of the heron shots...these are some of my favourite...with the fish jumping into his open beak! That's a great way to catch them! :-) 

Have a great week! More next week hopefully!

The Great Blue Heron at the Napanee Conservation Area

Great Blue Heron - Napanee, Ontario


Welcome Back! 

Well, we had an excellent holiday down east--perfect weather with no rain at all during the day compared to here, where I understand there was a couple of days of it! :-)

Last Sunday we picked up Brooke from University...she is done her BA and is off to Queen's in the fall for her Masters! 

This time I'm starting to highlight the heron, who is most often found at the bottom of the waterfall at the Napanee Conservation Area. I love shooting him--he's one of my favourite birds!

I have quite a few pics to highlight, so please bear with me!

On another note, I just realized I passed my Anniversary for this blog! I've been at this since April 28, 2008 -9 years---wow, I didn't ever think it would be this long-running when I started it, but I enjoy updating it and I hope you enjoy visiting it!

Anyway, have a great week!
