Ahh, Spring in the North...

On the 19th we had a huge snowstorm (see pics in previous entry.) And on the 21st - I'm back in the front yard trying to take birdie pics...

May 19th??? WTH???



I know I live in the north, but this is ridiculous! We got almost 5" of snow. Then the next day was sunny and back up to 15C. Crazy. I used Topaz Simplify to get the painting effect.




Those spots that looks like the sensor is filthy - that's how hard the snow was coming down!!

Snowstorm - May 17, 2009

Living in the north... Well, it's never dull. This is May long weekend - when we plant our gardens and enjoy the first camping trip of the season.

Not this year - at least not at our house...

Hi baby...



This little guy decided to pose for me as I sat on the front steps on Friday. He's sweet, eh?

Storm's Comin'


Evening, and I'm standing in the middle of the street in front of my house taking pictures. This is what I see looking southwest.

The Exterminator



This woodpecker has been having a time of it poking holes in the jack pine right outside my front door. I was worried he was killing the tree, but a neighbor assured me that the the tree was already mortally wounded by the ants that the woodpecker was eating. Im not so sure about that.

In any case, the ants (and likely the tree) is being exterminated as we speak... I know - I should do something to stop the woodpecker. But I can't bear to - the tree was in bad shape before, and I'm really feelin' the whole "circle of life" vibe.
