Twisting and turning.

A couple of Black Terns twisting and turning as they search for something to eat in a marsh. A bird would spot something in the marsh and twist around in flight.

I was taking a little used back road as an alternative route to visit friends in Saskatchewan when I came across a small colony of Black Terns on a marshy slough. Needless to say, I was late getting to the friends place although they knew I was going to be delayed having seen me on the back road when I was photographing the Terns.

An Eastern Garter Snake eating a Northern Leopard Frog.

Taken at Big Bay, Ontario. I was photographing a Cedar Waxwing when I heard a noise and discovered the snake slowly swallowing the frog. One of the photos was a runner-up in a photo contest about the preservation of nature which I found a little ironic.

Feeding the young, part two.

As there will be an unknown number of feeding the young posts I decided to number them rather than trying to come up with different titles for each one.

In this photo one of the adults is feeding a green caterpillar to the young.

Here the young are a few days old. I can now see 9 young, there will be more.

This week’s Cosmic Photo Challenge is Living in Your Best Light.

Coming home through a thunderstorm one afternoon last autumn there was a double rainbow and some nice light on the fields of the side road we live on. I drove down the road in heavy rain hoping it would ease off enough to get some shots of the rainbows. It eased off enough for me to stop the car and grab some shots at the barn. I dried the camera off with a towel when I got home.

So some nice light where we live.

Barn and rainbows.
