Short time with the camera today. Getting organized for other activities.
Here is an example of the beautiful Mallows across from D’s Place, near St Amants bottle return shed.
A good cluster of Common Rush (as opposed to Grass or Sedge).
Special inflorescence on the rush: ( I can easily see the spider web on the enlarged version but no spider. You?)
And speaking of inflorescence, the Meadow Rue, Thalictrum is starting to set seed now.
Suddenly the buds and blossoms are showing in the (well hidden) Lowbush Cranberry bog on Old Still River Road. The bumble bee is ensuring that we’ll have a crop to harvest at Thanksgiving time.
The sun was partially obscured by smoke from the Northern Saskatchewan wildfires giving a reddish tinge to the light.
Viper’s Bugloss up close. Apparently the structure minimizes evaporation of the nectar by sunshine and prevents dilution by rainfall.
A Yellow Warbler peaking out from the Tag Alders on Hwy 529.
A nice patch of Oxeye Daisies.
This is as close as I could get to this rangy bear before it ran off into the bush … on the way to Byng Inlet.
I think that this is an immature Goldfinch as it stayed in one spot while another one flitted around it.
This is the one that was doing the flitting. Mother?
This Chipmunk paused in its scampering to check out the camera.
This is the remains of an old house that burned to the ground overnight.
Big Lake Pickerel Weeds in the setting sunlight.
Oft-photographed Big Lake in a different light.
