My Sista! Buddy Barb and I wanted to get her brand new canoe in paddling mode before her trip to the Yukon, so we loaded her Swift, Muskoka 16ft., on the roof of her Sonata and off we headed to Eagle Lake, just West of South River, Ont. She paddles like a dream, and we enjoyed watching a Mama Loon and her two fuzzy brown chicks, there's a picture of them up in my header shots....
We explored one of the many rocky Islands and a remote beach shoreline where we took this shot, it was a fun day to enjoy an August sunny day and a swim at our main landing....Thanks Barb for some great memories...may we make many more!!!!!!

Please stand to correct me, but I beleive this is a Forest Banded Snail...he was just cruising along our trailer park road on a damp chilly day.....he looked at me several times, probably wondering what that big black thing with his reflection showing.....Was?

Our Trailer Park is exclusive to this wonderful clear body of water near Burk's Falls called Horn Lake....The deep blue waters are home to resident Lake Trout, Whitefish and Smallmouth Bass. Therefore most anglers leave the dock at sunset to pursue these species of fish, which hunt in the lower light conditions.

This little guy is our resident Chippy at the trailer. He is a much younger little guy than our chipmunk from last year, but not as fearless and friendly as our Little Stubbs. He would take his peanuts right out of your mouth or climb into your pockets...so much entertainment!!!! I'm not sure what their life span is, but I'm afraid Stubbs was very near to his end.

I have almost a hundred shots of BeeBalm but this has got to be my favorite!!!! I Love the soft glowing late evening light, around 7:00pm is my favorite time to shoot florals these days....of course this is with my favorite macro lens and as I said...all that is missing is a nice fat Bumble Bee!!!!!
