It’s Feeding Time

I brought out my long lens in the hopes of capturing some of the birds that visit my backyard. I got more than I had hoped.

Sparrow

First, this little sparrow came hopping over to me before realizing it was getting a little too close but I was able to snap a pic before it flew off.

Robin with Worm

Then this robin got himself a large worm to feed the family. Although this photo on the fence is a great angle I much prefer the photo below.

The robin in the cherry tree is in a more natural environment. Not bad for backyard photos of the local birds.

Just Another Macro Walk

Another neighbourhood walk was on the agenda today and there was so much to photograph. Spring is one of the best times to focus on macro photography. Slap on the macro lens and head out the door to a local park or if you are lucky some neighbours may just have some great flowers for you to photograph.

Lilac

This lilac bush is on a neighbours front lawn growing through the catwalk fence. This is perfect, as I can spend a lot more time getting shots without looking like some stalker. LOL

Tulip

For some reason, tulips have started popping up in the creek over the last few years. I love finding out what colours I can find as I walk down the path.

Wild Leek

Wild Leek

When I first came across this interesting flower I had no idea what it was. It looked like an onion but it was very large in comparison to what I’m used to seeing. I used the seek app and was informed that it was a wild leek. I have no idea if that’s what it is but I would say there is a good chance.

A Visit to Cold Creek

It was a nice warm day for a hike at Cold Creek Conservation Area in Nobleton.  I visited this park with my friend @nigelbanks57 today and as the day progressed it got pretty hot out.

Turtles

Turtles

This could be why we spotted so many painted turtles sunning themselves on floating logs in the pond. This is the best one I was able to get. I definitely had the wrong lens with me to get shots of them. 

Yellow flowers

But, I did have the right one for this great macro shot of the Marsh Marigolds.
