    Nest in the Woods

    Found this large bee’s nest or hornets nest in the woods, not sure exactly what kind it is.

    What are you looking at?

    A wild turkey eating in Caledon, Ontario. Photo taken with my zoom lens in the late afternoon.

    Red Squirrel pays a visit

    This little guy, an American Red Squirrel visits my place every morning to steal seeds from the bird feeders. The American Red Squirrel are widely found across North America. Their range includes most of Canada, and extends into the United States in the Rocky Mountains, the North Central and North East, so they are no […]

    Wandering Coyote near Brampton/Caledon

    Don’t let the photo fool you, I found this wandering coyote in a much more urban environment than it looks like. On my way home later afternoon yesterday by Hwy 7 & 427 I happened to notice in the corner of my eye something moving. When I stopped I was surprised to find a very […]

    Stalking a Hawk

    Quite often I see Hawk’s in Caledon, they are territorial and usually stay in certain areas so after a while you know where to find them. However getting good pictures of them even with a big zoom lens is often a challenge. You may see them on the sides of the roads, sitting on power […]

    Blue Jay on Deck

    I have noticed a lot of Blue Jays in the area and around my house lately, they are beautiful birds but elusive to grab a close-up photo. This particular guy was on my deck one morning and I had to shoot the picture through my sliding patio door glass which is obviously not preferable for […]

    Up Close and Personal, the Northern Leopard Frog

I used the software Photomatix to tonemap the picture which makes an HDR(High dynamic range imaging) photo and brings out the vibrant color on this Leopard Frog. This particular guy was a pretty […]

    Tagged Red-tailed Hawk south of Bolton, Ontario

    On my way home I caught this Red-tailed Hawk (correct me if I am wrong) just south of Bolton along side Highway 50. He was scanning the ditch below for food and I must have made him nervous as he flew away fairly quickly once he spotted me. I didn’t notice it until after I […]

    Garden Snake / Garter Snake in Caledon

    I caught a few close ups of this Garden Snake on my way to Caledon Lake. The official name for them is actually Garter Snake but they also go by a number names, garden snakes, gardner snakes or gardener snakes, or even garder snakes or guarder snakes. I took this photo with my new Olympus […]

    Deer in Caledon, Ontario in June

    Here are a few new photos of some deer I recently took in the Caledon area. Maybe its just me looking a lot closer but it seems like there is more deer around this year compared to last year, well at least in my area. These deer were gracing the field of hay in my […]
