Spring Pictures

Good morning all.  I'm back today to share some of Bill's pictures he took when we were up in Algonquin Provinical Park Easter weekend.  Even though Easter was later this year, and due to the harsh long winter there was still snow up there, but it was so worth the trip. Here are some of our favourites.

For a closer look, just click on the photo.

 Grass reflections in Costello creek ~

As were we sitting beside  Costello creek early one  morning watching the Common Mergansers, a blue heron flew in and landed on this log - so cool!

Evening Grosbecks, which are rare to see where we live, so it was nice to be able to capture their pictures up in Algonquin.

 Common Grackle - beautiful colour tones in the morning sunlight

 And then of course, the highlight of our trip -- to see some Moose!

I hope you enjoyed the pictures.  Bill is working on pictures from our trip up north, so will share those with you soon. Have a wonderful day.

If Bill is not a professional photographer already he really should think about taking that up! These photos are outstanding!

You know how I love these nature photos and, of course, I had to enlarge every shot. Bill is amazing with his photography. Even the most simple, perhaps especially the most simple of the photos show the true art of nature. Outstanding, Pauline! Thank you!

Gosh I wish I had that kind of picture taking talent. Your husband is truly blessed Pauline. Thanks so much for sharing these. Those first two just took my breath away. WOW!
