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!

Napanee, Ontario

Welcome Back!

This week I am highlighting pics of other things besides the waterfowl found at the Napanee Conservation Park! 

This was a beautiful spring day and we found wildflowers, lily pads, water lilies and a variety of turtles: painted and Blandings (I think). That's the one thing I love about this park, is the variety of wildlife. We almost always see turtles, sometimes they are close enough to get pics and other times, not so much. We also see a lot of fish in the fall, when they are spawning. We love to sit and watch them! And, my favourite bird, the heron is there quite a bit too...I'll have some pics of him next time I post!

Well, I likely won't be posting for the next couple of weeks as my much-needed holiday starts next weekend! Yay! I can't wait!

Have a great couple of weeks!
