I was spending some time chatting with my mom and dad in the sunroom when my dad spotted them. He had spotted a pair of mourning doves sitting on the plum tree branch just outside the window.  I took this photo of one of them as they were enjoying the warm rays...

When Nothing Goes Right

When Nothing Goes Right

I was out again today with my friend Nigel in the hopes of getting some good images at 50 Point Pier, but it seems as though Mother Nature may have had some plans of her own and they didn't include us getting good photos. When we got down to the pier all we saw was...

Feeding the Birds

Feeding the Birds

Today I met my friend Nigel over at Claireville Conservation Area for a late afternoon walk. We found a couple of bird feeders nestled into some trees on a side path so we stopped to take a few photographs. The Chickadees are always around the feeders so it was nice...
