Throwback Thursday

Throwback Thursday this week is continuing my look back at some of the photos taken when I was living in Southampton, Ontario.

This is the range light at the mouth of the Saugeen River on the Lake Huron shoreline in Southampton at sunrise. Taken in September 2007.

Female Common Merganser with young

This week Throwback Thursday is traveling back 13 years to August 2007.

This is a female Common Merganser with young on Lake Huron near the Long Dock in Southampton, Ontario, Canada. This was a very late brood, the young wouldn’t have long to grow and prepare to head south for the winter.

Travel Tuesday

Emerging from the fog

This week’s Travel Tuesday is only traveling back a couple of years.

I used to live in the town of Southampton on the Lake Huron shoreline in Ontario. A couple of summers ago I was back in the town and went down to the shoreline. It was foggy out over Lake Huron and when this green kayak appeared out of the fog it made the photo.

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Spring

This is my contribution to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Spring.

For the month of July the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge has the theme of seasons. I decided to go with a theme for each season, one bird photo, one scenic photo and one flora and fauna photo.

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

On reading the prompt I thought of the distances some bird species cover on migration.

That made me think of the Red Knot, one individual ringed in Argentina breeds in the Canadian arctic. It’s officially known as B95, the identification on the orange ring on its leg. It’s nicknamed Moonbird having flown more than the distance to the moon on its migrations.

This is a juvenile Red Knot on the Lake Huron shoreline on autumn migration. It hatched from an egg in the summer and has already travelled from the Canadian arctic and could travel as far as South America on its first migration.
