This is my contribution to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Bark prompt.

Rather an appropriate prompt as tree bark has been a regular subject of my walks around the neighborhood since the various Covid-19 pandemic regulations first started nearly a year ago.

Starting with the Letter – S

This week Patti gave use the prompt Subjects Starting with the Letter – S for the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge.

I quickly had a long list of ideas for the challenge and was considering a couple of different themes to build a post around.

When I realised that one set of three photos were taken in different seasons I decided to go with a set of four photos, one from each season.

Forms of Water

This is my contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge: Solid, liquid and gas prompt.

After two weeks of snow and below normal temperatures there was an obvious choice for this prompt, water in its various forms.

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Treasure Hunt
Solid and gas. Ice on a section of frozen marsh at Little Quill Lake, Saskatchewan, Canada in winter. Clouds overhead are part water vapour although at -40° there can be very little water vapour at ground level.
Cee's Fun Foto Challenge: Winter
Solid and gas. Solid in the form of snow and ice on Lake Huron. Gas in the form of the water vapour in the clouds over Chantry Island and its lighthouse, Southampton, Ontario at sunset.

White-breasted Nuthatch

My Saturday Bird this week is continuing series of bird species photographed in winter.

This is a White-breasted Nuthatch (Sitta carolinensis) photographed in Greenwater Lake Provincial Park, Saskatchewan, Canada at the same time as my recent Pine Grosbeak and Evening Grosbeak posts.

A resident of woodlands across North America. The species is non-migratory with adults normally staying on their territory year round.
