January 25/ Nature Notes

On the northern shore of Lake Ontario

This is some of what Mother Nature had to offer this week.

Largest square: ice on the rocks at Bond Head. Moving clockwise: mallard on the snow-covered shore; dried weeds (evening primrose) still in fairly good condition; zillions of Canada geese flying this way and that way and...; ice on a shallow pond surrounded by green cedars and golden weeping willows and cattails; and a river edged in ice and dried grasses.

love that selection of photos. Looks as though we are going to have a better day than we did yesterday. Did you venture out yesterday? I hibernated all day, heading to Shelburne this morning to run errands.

Put some more wedding photos on my blog along with a couple of challenges I am taking part in, in February.

we are still seeing geese flying south from here and we ARE south so go figure on that one. i like the ice on the rocks, and i bet they would be hard to climb on.

Lovely nature collage! Cool capture of the geese in flight!

Barb said...

Nice collage. I always wonder how the wildlife stays alive with all that snow and ice. Those ducks are a lot tougher than me.

Marvin said...

Great collage. I especially enjoyed the Ice on the Rocks photo.

Rose said...

Nice shots...I love the bigger one in the lower left-hand corner. Love the composition of it.

Mother Nature keeps on cookin' even in the dead of winter. And you keep on snappin' photos - beautiful photos.

I won't mention snow. But I did think of you today as I rolled up to a red light next to a huge Ontario pickyup truck!

We've had just a few nasty cold days, but unusually warm most of the others :-)

Gee, the red on that lighthouse really stands out.

A very good seasonal collage.

I get cold feet just by looking at the mallard duck.

Rambling Woods said...

Lake Erie is still mostly open.. Unusual winter so far..I do wonder how the mallards keep their feet warm as I have some here standing on ice....
