I came out my front door to spy a young woodpecker in the jack pine. But by the time I got my camera out he was gone, leaving only the damage done to the tree. Apparently I must carry a camera 24/7...

The local trade fair was this weekend, and since I live near the venue my neighborhood was filled with cars. I didn't even notice this beautiful GSD until I got too close to his truck - he then let out a deep throated bark to warn me away. He was otherwise very polite and never attempted to leave the truck. If only my dogs were so obedient!

One of the nicest things about visiting Nashville in April is catching the dogwoods in bloom. Truly a beautiful and unique flower. And interestingly enough, they are both the state flower of Tennessee and the provincial flower of British Columbia.

This blue heron has been nesting at the creek behind my parent's condo for several years, and can been seen daily from their balcony. He was not very happy with me exploring near him, and this was the only good picture I was able to get of him.

I travelled to Nashville to visit my family, leaving slush and brown to soak up (literally - the humidy was bad! LOL) spring. I left the evening of April 6. These are the carts in the Grande Prairie AB airport.
