The First Autumn Weekend of 2021

This is my contribution to Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge: Autumn prompt.

Having done a couple of photo challenges about autumn colour recently I decided to go with a different take on the prompt.

A set of photos taken around sunrise over the first weekend of autumn. All taken around Colpoy’s Bay on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario.

Dark Greens of Late Summer

This is my contribution to Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge: Dark Greens September Colour topic.

Shades of green on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario a few days ago. I liked the light on the scrubland and the clouds over the greens.

Female Ruby-throated Hummingbird

CMMC: Contains the letter U

An immature male Ruby-throated Hummingbird (Archilochus colubris) on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario. A popular summer visitor to Ontario with their arrival a sign that summer is close.

My Flora and Fauna Friday post this week was chosen because it won’t be long before the Hummingbirds will be heading south for the winter.

I selected this photo of the species because it’s a personal favourite which was also published in a calendar. I’m say it’s an immature male because there appears to be some darker flecks in the feathers on the birds throat. That will be the ruby feathers starting to appear.

It’s also a slightly late contribution to Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge: August Alphabet must have two M’s in the word prompt.
