20150531 Local sights: Blooms & Birdies

Although yesterday was very windy and cool, we managed to make a few photos in the neighbourhood.


Proud parent:


Being visited by a brood of Mallards



“Peek a boo!”  says this American Yellow Warbler.


What is that red structure on this Jackpine branch?



Three pix of Starflowers.  (Worth clicking on to see the delicate structure of the blossom.)

Starflower photography was interrupted by the songs of this American Redstart Warbler, some distance away.


It looks like a good blueberry crop this year, good crop of blackflies right now.

Young couple enjoying a bit of warmth, out of the wind.  What was that kind of iridescent coloration  called?

Those duck features are really very nice up close!


Have a good week!

    I enjoy getting them up. But I don’t know how long I can keep up this pace.
