Splash

This is my contribution to the One Word Sunday prompt Splash.

I had a few images in mind for this prompt. Then I thought of a line in an old pop song, “Splish, splash I was takin’ a bath” which made this photo an obvious choice.

Throwback Thursday

A V at Sunset

Throwback Thursday travels back to Saskatchewan in the late 1990s.

A large, loose V of Sandhill Cranes flying to roost at sunset during the autumn migration.

With no internet connection at home I’m slowly working on editing the thousands of slides I copied last winter. I recently finished all the copies with Sandhill Crane included in the keywords.

Saturday Bird

Juvenile Red Knot

My Saturday Bird this week is a juvenile Red Knot (Calidris canutus) resting on the Lake Huron shoreline in Southampton, Ontario, Canada.

This individual hatched from an egg in the summer and is now heading south for the winter. It has stopped on the shoreline to feed and rest having already flown from northern Canada. It could travel as far as the southern tip of South America for the winter.
