The Toronto Zoo's Masai Giraffe

Toronto, Ontario


 Welcome back!

This week I'm highlighting some giraffe photos. These guys were outside in their enclosure. Most days when I've been there, they've been in their smaller enclosure, so I haven't gotten any pictures of them in quite awhile--so, you can imagine my excitement seeing them out and about!

More next week! Have a great week!

More From The Zoo...

Toronto, Ontario

Welcome Back!

This week I'm highlighting more animals from the Toronto Zoo. These are not in any particular order...just the way they were shot.. If you've never been to the zoo, the zoo is laid out in various geographical regions vs type of animals, so you do see prey animals next to predators... (different cages of course!)

Here, we have photos of: a Red Tailed Green Ratsnake, White's Tree Frogs, Straw Coloured Fruit Bats (hanging around) and the Red River Hog (warthog). I was happy with these ones as they are all behind glass except the warthogs...

More next time! Have a great week!

Toronto Zoo Animal Photos

Toronto, Ontario


 Welcome back!

Sorry, I've been MIA for quite awhile...I started a job as a Job Coach to a young autistic man and I work two days per week with him. It's been quite a blast, but tiring as well! :-) I've also been working on my card creations, getting a Facebook page ready and posting pics, etc.

Keturah also came for a visit so we tried to get out and enjoy the weather when we could. We still enjoy going out, even when it's cold...we just bundle up! Today is a rainy day, so I'm  catching up on computer work. I had to go through the next folder of pics on my hard drive and found these zoo pics...Brooke and I went back in June 2015 and these are some from that visit...

A white rhinoceros, paper white butterflies, clouded leopard and some fish. The last four are behind glass, so they aren't the best I've done! :-)

Have a great week!

Wildlife Pics from the Napanee Conservation Area

Napanee, Ontario


Welcome Back!

It seems like I haven't posted in awhile, as I've been busy creating greeting cards-my creative mojo was on overdrive, so I had to go with it! :-)

This week I have pics from the Napanee Conservation, including the Great Blue Heron, some wildflowers, baby ducks and some turtles soaking up the sun!

Not sure what I will highlight next...probably the same sort of pics, just on a different day...:-)

Have a great week!

Even MORE Great Blue Heron Pics

Napanee, ON

 Welcome Back!

This week I have even more pics of the Great Blue Heron from the Napanee Conservation Area...You do remember I said he was a favourite of mine, don't you? Anyway, I am almost done the pics of him from this one visit! Not sure what will be up next..maybe I'll throw in some pics from our new home in Grand Manan, not pics of our house, but pics of the whales...Kevin went whale watching in August with my brother-in-law, who was here visiting and they got a bunch of great pics! I'll show them off soon!

Anyway, here are some of the great blue heron in the meantime...I'll have a few more next week and then something different!

Have a great week!

Even MORE Great Blue Heron Pics

Napanee, ON

 Welcome Back!

This week I am continuing with photos from May 2015 of the Great Blue Heron that is found at the Napanee Conservation Park waterfall.

The first few pics show him with ruffled feathers...he does this every now and again..maybe he has an itch or something! He looks so much bigger and fluffier when he does it.

The rest of pics are some of him watching for fish or catching fish...Or the fish jumping into his mouth.

This week has been busy as I finally finished organizing my craft studio and then started my Christmas cards. Lots of fun! I can't believe summer is almost over and school starts next week!

Have a great week!

More Great Blue Heron Photos

Napanee, Ontario


Welcome back!

This week I have more pics of one of my favourite birds....The Great Blue Heron. This guy is found a lot of the time at the bottom of the waterfalls at the Napanee Conservation Park from spring to late fall.

In most of these pics, he's doing his favourite past time--fishing for food! He must have really good eyes to be able to catch some of these little fish with the water swirling all around.

Well, Kevin started work this last week...yep, he got bored!...I'm looking, but haven't found anything yet. 

I'm still organizing things in my craft room and in the house, so we went to Saint John yesterday to pick up more organizers, etc. 

More heron shots next week. Have a great week!
