The wonder of migration.

The new Tuesday Photo Challenge is Wonder.

Each spring I wait for the return of the Ruby-throated Hummingbirds. Having spent the winter in the tropics they head north for the summer. The only Hummingbird species that breeds to the east of the Mississippi River some Ruby-throated Hummingbirds travel north of the Great Lakes to breed. A tremendous journey for such a small bird.

This male was photographed on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario last summer and obviously doesn’t like its photo being taken as it’s sticking its tongue out at the photographer.

Layers of cloud at Sunrise.

The new Tuesday Photo Challenge is Sunrise.

As a someone who has been photographed a lot of sunries it was a bit of a challenge picking one.

In the end I went with a sunrise from around a decade ago. I find the multi coloured layers of cloud interesting. The photo is of Colpoy’s Bay with the Niagara Escarpment and White Cloud Island on the horizon.
