Foam Pattern's

I was walking around the Dufferin Islands and at the mouth of an underground tunnel foam was forming in patterns. Each tunnel had different patterns depending on the underwater current. It was like looking at live abstract art since it was changing patterns as I watched!

Autumn Reflections

This was taken on a refreshingly, crisp, autumn morning. Still water because the boats had been put up for the winter. It was a calm, serene, morning with just the birds singing, no wind and a feeling of oneness with the omni present creator of the universe. I sat at the end of the dock for a very long time drinking in this solitude, being at peace with my world, and a need to capture this quietness for all time.

Storm Clouds

I was out at the west end of the city planning on capturing the golden hour and a sunset. But it didn’t happen. Instead I was a 1/4 mile away from my car and the sky opened up. I had a weather protector for my camera bag but I had forgotten to return my rain poncho to said camera bag, it was still in the car. I got drenched. Then the skies cleared but only after the sun had set. Oh well! There will always be another sunset!

Datura Inoxia

This plant often referred to as the Devil’s Trumpet is a pretty to look at flower with a sweet scent. It is called the devil’s trumpet, partly because of its antispasmodic, hallucinogenic, hypnotic and narcotic attributes. Being that it is part of the Solanaceae family, all of this plant as with all of the Dratura’s are poisonous. This is one of the loveliest of the Daturas. Not a particularly tall plant, it can sprawl its indolent way over a six foot chunk of your border producing as it goes, on its velvety, grey-green foliage. Info from Chiltern Seeds

Peek A Boo!

I was getting ready to take a close up of the moss on the bark when suddenly this little squirrel popped into view, and seemed to want to play, because he hid from my view only to reappear in the same spot doing this twice more so I was quick enough to capture him the second time he popped into view!

Pollenating!

Pollenation

This pretty purple Hibiscus flower is being relieved of its pollen by a couple of industrious bees. I watched them for more than 5 minutes as they worked their way around the red pistils which are the female reproductive parts, and the yellow stamens are the male reproductive parts – in turn they made up the filament that holds up the pollen sac or anther. The anther releases pollen when open. Info from Juridicious.com Looking at the world one photo at a time! Anatomy of a Hibiscus – Part 2 (Extreme Macro)
