January Squares: Lines of Flight

This is my day 16 contribution to Becky’s January Squares: Light photo challenge and day four of my five day sequence of Flight squares.

These are lines of Snow Geese flying to roost at sunset in the autumn. Taken a Little Quill Lake, Saskatchewan, Canada, a staging area for the species on their way south for the winter.

A Photo a Week Challenge: At Play

This is my rather late contribution to the A Photo a Week Challenge: At Play. I only discovered the prompt days after it was posted.

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: A Window With A View

This is my contribution to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: A Window With A View.

It was the photo of a Woodpecker looking out of its nest hole in Amy’s prompt for the challenge that gave me the idea for this post. It made me think of the various species of birds I have photographed looking out of their nest holes. Then I started considering the reverse, me looking out of openings when I was photographing various species.

A house window. Actually a bedroom window of my parents house in Cheshire, England. An upstairs window got me closer to eye with this Redwing eating a Holly berry.

A vehicle window. Friend’s had this Red Fox hunting in the hay field behind their house. I parked by the side of their garage and photographed it out of the drivers door window.

January Squares: Osprey in Flight

This is my day 14 contribution to Becky’s January Squares: Light photo challenge and day two of my Flight sequence.

An Osprey with a White Sucker in flight along the Lake Huron shoreline in Southampton, Ontario. I was considering going with White in Flight or Sucker in Flight as the fish is a White Sucker but neither really make sense. I should also explain that sucker is the Canadian name for a lollipop.
