Canadian Geese

Welcome Back!

This time I'm highlighting all photos of the Canadian Goose including a few headshots..I love getting closeups of any kind of wild animal! These were taken at the same place along Lake Ontario going towards Kingston in June.

Well, this week will be a bit busier than usual. Finishing up that dreaded Christmas kids keep giving me ideas..they always do this!! I also had a lovely visit to my dentist today for a cleaning. Brooke comes home on Thursday on the train..I can't wait! On Friday I get to have lunch with two of my bestest friends, Lynn and Melissa and because it's a PA day, we will have my two girls and Melissa's son to hang out with too! Should be a fun luncheon!

Have a great week and I'll probably post again on the weekend...more geese/duck photos!

Goose, Goose, Duck!

No, this isn't a title for a new game, its the photos I'm including this week! These are all of geese and baby geese, except for 1 photo, which are ducks...can you find them?

These photos were all taken at a park along Hwy#33 going into Kingston. I think it's the visitor information park near Bath. We always see lots of birds there and this visit in June was no exception...and, with lots of babies!

I'll be including quite a few of these guys over the next few weeks as I have again taken way too many!

Well, this week has been fairly quiet..thank goodness! I've been going to the gym and trying to get some of my shopping done..wish I knew what to buy for my kiddies!

Nothing planned for the weekend...we are suppose to get lots of snow tomorrow...a good day to stay in and a visit to Westlake on Sunday if the weather is better!

 Have a great weekend!

American Flamingos, Pt. 3

Welcome Back!

These are the last of the Flamingo photos! Not sure what I'm highlighting next time..I'm finished with the Zoo animals from our June visit...I do have some landscapes from around the Zoo, but I may not highlight them as they aren't as interesting! :-)

Well, this week is suppose to be a quiet one..Only one appointment scheduled, along with visits to the gym and some Christmas Shopping. 

Have a great week!

American Flamingos, Pt. 2

Welcome Back!

This week I have more of the Flamingo photos. These guys are so colourful and fun to watch at the zoo! I will have one more post of the Flamingos next week!

Well, this week ended up being busier than I thought. I had to take Keturah to the Oral Surgeon's in Belleville twice this week..I think she is finally on the mend. I got most of my Christmas shopping done too..just a couple more to get!  

Today we are off to a Christmas Tea for family and friends at the Westlake Terrace. It should be fun! Last Wednesday, while visiting Uncle at Westlake, they had the Quinte Irish Session Players who played Irish jigs and Christmas music was a lovely performance enjoyed by all!

Have a great weekend!

American Flamingos

Welcome Back!

This week I'm highlighting some pretty pink birds--the American Flamingos. These critters are found in the Americas Outdoor Exhibit at the Toronto Zoo. They sure are colourful and very active. I found it very hard to photograph just one by itself, so you'll see more than 1 in most of these shots. Also did some creative cropping as they are so tall and skinny!  :-)

Well, this week should be a quiet one, with nothing scheduled! :-) I do have to get some Christmas shopping done! SIGH! 

More Flamingos later this week...

Giant Pandas, Pt. 4

Welcome Back!

This time I'm highlighting photos of the female Giant Panda who is called Er Shun. She was eating pretty much the whole time we were photographing her. These are not the best photos I've taken but very hard in a darkened exhibit and through glass! SIGH! Her face and expressions are so cute in these shots...

I'll have some birds or flamingos next time!

Wow, hard to believe it is Friday already! Time flies when you're having fun right? Well, Keturah's dental surgery went well, however her recovery has been long..she's still off school...hopefully she'll be back on Monday!

Not much planned for the weekend..which is okay by me! Maybe some sleeping in? :-) Tonight I'm off to a card-making class, so I am looking forward to that! It's been awhile since I attended an actual class, but I do take a few online classes!

 Have a great weekend!

Giant Pandas, Pt. 3

Welcome Back!

This time I'm highlighting the male Giant Panda again. I think these are the last of them (for the male.) Next time I'll have some of the female Giant Panda! Sorry if some of these photos look repetitive, I liked the look of his facial expression, etc, so included it! When he is showing his teeth in the one photo, he was not growling, I just caught him at the end of a yawn!

Well, I was happy to finally see some snow on Saturday. Unfortunately it didn't stick around very long! The weekend went by too fast again, but I got some Christmas shopping done, Keturah's boyfriend came over for dinner and a visit, I made some greeting cards and visited my uncle at Westlake Terrace!

This week, Keturah is having her wisdom teeth out..tomorrow morning to be exact and she will have to take it easy for 2-3 days, so I will have to be her nurse for a day or two! :-)

More later this week...
