For the Birds: It’s not Summer Anymore!

I sincerely hope that none of the readers of this column were holding their breath waiting my next post!!  I truly apologize for my absence.  Summer at our new house has come & long gone.  I haven’t exactly been the most active in terms of photography. I was able to get out a few times with my husband to catch some loons in action which is always a thrill for me.  I found new employment a few months ago, and have been busily adjusting to another new schedule.

Today I decided to take the backroads home from my dental appointment in Arnprior.  I packed my camera and I am very glad I did!   It’s been such a long time since I have done that and I was rewarded with a Blue Heron hunting in a river near Pakenham.  I have also been seeing photos posted of Snowy owls around the Ottawa area, though I haven’t seen one yet.  I trust I will at some point soon!

I will share my photos I have taken since my last post in July.  Please enjoy them all below.

Until next time!
