Snow White

CanadaAnemone2018

Growing amongst the untamed grass is what I believe is Canada Anemone.  This photo was taken June 17, 2018 near my house.  I love the beautiful white colour of these flowers.  It really grabs your attention!

Listening

EasternCottontail2018

I believe this is an Eastern Cottontail rabbit resting on the green grass.  This photo was captured today near my house.   I think the rabbit looks so cute with its big black eyes and furry coat.

Trio

IMG_3577

Captured here is a trio of pinkish red crabapple blossoms.  This photo was taken on May 21, 2018 on Queen’s University Campus.  I love the bright, cheerful pink and red colours in this photo.  It definitely elevates my mood.

Like The Bark

GrayBird2018

A grey bird rests on a dark branch, nicely blending in with its environment.  This photo was taken on May 30, 2018 near my house.  My bird app says it is a Grey Catbird, but I’m not completely convinced.  In any case, I do love the shade of grey of its coat.

Near Match

PurpleTree

A deep dark purple tree stands in front of a window.  This photo was taken on May 21, 2018 near downtown Kingston.  This tree looks like a maple but I’m not 100% sure.  I love the dark colour of the leaves and how it stands out from the beige background.  I like how that same purple colour is seen in the window frame.  Almost seems like the colour is flowing from the tree to the window.

Stretching

YellowWarbler2018

Caught in the middle of a neck stretch is a yellow warbler.  This photo was taken on May 13, 2018 near my place.  I’ve seen these small birds a few times when I’m out shooting.  They are so bright with their intense yellow coat.  Such beautiful birds!

St. Mary’s Tulips

TulipsStMary2018

Basking in the bright sunlight are these colourful tulips.  This photo was taken on May 21, 2018 (Victoria Day) in front of St. Mary’s Cathedral in downtown Kingston.  I love the bright, and colourful aspects of this photo.  They create a very cheerful mood.

Lucky Red

Cardinal2018Standing out from the background in its brilliant red coat is a cardinal.  This photo was taken on April 30, 2018 in a wooded area near my house.  Cardinals are one of my favourite birds.  I love their beautiful and intense red plumage.  I get so excited every time I see a cardinal.  Hopefully, I will see more of these gorgeous birds in the near future.

New Growth

NewGrowth2018

This photo shows new growth from a branch of a tree.  It was taken on May 13, 2018 near my house.  I love the simplicity of this photo: all you see is sky, branch and leaflets.  You can also make out the strong sunlight hitting some of the leaves.   I think it captures the renewal and regrowth of the spring season well.

Electric Eyes

CommonGrackle2018

With its intense black coat and piercing yellow eyes, this Common Grackle quietly rests on a tree branch.  This photo was taken on April 2, 2018 near my place.   These are such beautiful birds with irdescent blue and yellow feathers.     I have only seen them a few times in early spring.  I hope to get a close-up shot of one in the near future.
