Stubby



This baby sparrow has been visiting the feeder. Flying without tail feathers must be a little hazardous.

Seabird



I found this feather on Crescent Beach. I don't know who it belongs to but I liked the contrast with the armour stone.

Sand Sculpture



What with the poor economy and debt ceilings and all, we have to settle for sand houses instead of sand castles.

American Goldfinch Male



The male goldfinches seem to be getting brighter by the day. I can't wait until we have a sunny day. Until then : this is as bright as it gets.

Short Snapper



We found this Snapping Turtle in the middle of the highway. I moved him to the side of the road and pointed him in the direction of a pond. He was not amused.

Instrumental



A wet and damp day here on the South Shore. I was fiddling around with an old picture and thought I'd do some major cropping.

Poses of Roses
















I am having a very hard time dealing with backdrops and lighting and reflectors and tripods.

If I move the backdrop to the left do I move the camera to the right?

I'd rather just go out in the woods and shot something.

I have to admit I did start to feel relaxed after taking about 50 pictures of these roses but I have a nagging suspicion I was more relaxed before I started.

A pair of crossbills at the feeder. I'll leave it to you to decide which one is the female.

Spring has Sprung


Spring in Nova Scotia. Yesterday I saw six robins scratching in the garden. Today a lone robin was shivering in an apple tree.

Woodsplitters


A sunny day with temperatures around freezing. A good day to split some wood.

Pulp Fiction


As the ice melts and the wood roads become too soft for heavy machinery, loggers in Lunenburg County have no choice but to harness up their trusty chocolate labs.
