Birds are a passion for me. This eastern bluebird was at our farm for a few weeks in the spring, then flew away. I had so much fun trying to photograph him sitting on a bluebird house. I thought for sure the couple would establish in it, who knows why they decided otherwise?
A sunflower always makes me smile. I photographed this field mid-August near Bainsville. Just happened to drive by and, as a photographer, had my camera in the car. Sunflowers! I was so happy to see them. It amazes me to see the resemblances–yet they are all different.
Here is my photo of a tree swallow coming out of the nest. They come and go constantly in early May, building nests.They are so beautiful with iridescent colour, I could watch them all day. If that is not worth watching and taking pictures I don’t know what is! Photography during Covid 19 is such a good distraction for me, it is also good pastime.
Thistle in the field. Now on the farm we call a thistle a weed. But being from Glengarry you almost have to take one photo of them a year. Never know which photograph will inspire me to paint or do stained glass later.
