On November 19th we woke to a heavy snowfall of wet snow that had frozen to the landscape. This is what we saw around Britt.
Across the highway along Boucher’s Pit Road:
Old Still River Road …
Still River from Hwy 526 …
From Old Legion Lane
Byng Inlet from Riverside Road …
Tom and Sue came by and pointed out this nest across the road from Joe and Allison’s place. I emailed Joe Campbell at http://www.gananoque.com/goh/joe.htm
who told me that the nest was made by a colony of bald-faced hornets.
You may remember this wasp consuming its prey in this September 1st post.
In that post I mis-identified the wasp a Great Black Wasp. It is actually a Bald-Faced Hornet consuming a big hoverfly.
This load of snow on winterberries reminds me of Marge Simpson!
And every time I see this great carving I am reminded of my late dear friend John.
He is sadly missed by our little community and by kith and kin across our Country.
