    Purple Finch

    Its definitely starting to look and feel more like spring now and after this past winter it can’t come soon enough.

    The Moon in Caledon, Ontario in March 2009

    I took this photo of the bright moon in my caledon backyard a week ago. The weather was a little warmer and the moon light was creating a neat effect over the tree line so continuing along with my experimenting of night time photography I took some shots.

    Small Little Woodpecker in Caledon

    This small little woodpecker has been in my backyard for quite a while but I haven’t been able to get a good picture of him until now. I am not entirely sure but I think it is either a female Downy Woodpecker or a female Hairy Woodpecker, if you know please let me know. I […]
