I decided to keep it simple and go with a selection of photos taken on my walks around the neighborhood starting shortly after Ontario had gone into lockdown in the spring.
I then decided to select one photo from the spring, one from the summer and one from autumn.
Paper Birch trees against a blue sky. Taken in the spring after a lot of the world had gone into lockdown. I noticed that the sky seemed bluer, possibly due to the lack of aircraft flying at the time.
I spent part of the summer experimenting with photographing flowers and plants with various unusual lenses when out for my walks around the neighborhood. This fern frond was taken using a fast portrait lens.

This is my contribution to the Weekly Prompts: Awareness challenge.
I thought of a few types of awareness, animals are generally much more aware of their surroundings and potential threats than most humans.
This Red-breasted Nuthatch is checking the sky, aware of the possibility of predators overhead.
On the other hand, the Covid-19 pandemic that has forced many people to stay at home has probably made some people more aware of their surroundings. I quickly became aware of how much bluer the sky in this part of Ontario was with so few aircraft flying.
I’m aware of how bright the neighborhood Paper Birch trees look against the deep blue sky.
