More Birds...

Here are a few more birds shots taken at Amherst Island, last Friday. I'm not sure what kind they are..do you? I tried a quick google search, but didn't find anything right off, so gave up.

I know the third one is a hawk and was very cool gliding around.

Road Trip!

Since the beginning of April, I have been working a 3-day week and so have two extra days off per week. Since then, I have spent all these days doing laundry and cleaning the house, so today I decided to have a "ME" day and head out with my camera!

It was such a beautiful day, so I drove to the ferry and headed over to Amherst Island to see what I could see! I saw a lot of little birds and quite a few hawks, then about 2 hours into my trip, I saw this Snowy owl and spent 1/2 hour with him, taking various shots. Thank goodness, the roads weren't busy as I was standing in the middle of the road for most of this time!

The only downside of the day is that my car is now disgustingly dusty!!! Inside and out..the joys of dirt roads!

So, here are the fruits of my labour today! I will post other bird shots next time!

More Horse Friends

I haven't posted any horse shots lately, so here goes! These are from a couple of Saturday's ago as the girls and I went to Ottawa this past weekend. We had lots of fun, but are tired out!

Here are: Casey, Harmony, Abby, a horse, who's name I don't know and Torrent's nose peeking through the fence (I love these shots)!!!

A hiking we will go...

On Monday, we headed out to enjoy the nice, warm weather. We went to Lemoine's Point in Kingston for a hike through the woods. We saw a variety of critters---a woodpecker, a lot of chickadees, a couple of chipmunks, a couple of nuthatches and of course, a couple of snakes!

Here are some shots from our hike...A couple of chickadees and a couple of chipmunks.

Quack, Quack, Quack...

Just three of my favourite shots of ducks today. These were taken a couple of weeks ago when we went hiking at the boardwalk around the Napanee River. I already have thousands of duck pictures, but you can never have enough, right?

Anyway, I'd like to wish everyone a very Happy Easter weekend!

2nd Shot-Shebazz, or her nose anyway, sticking out of her stall
