Scavenger Hunt

 1. Home - osprey nest

Many thanks to Ashley Sisk who hosts Scavenger Hunt Sunday.

Ospreys - or sea hawks - live in nests high above the ground. This young one's nest is on platform on the south end of Cook's Bay, part of Lake Simcoe, and it's at home waiting for one of its parents to return with yummy fresh fish.


 2. Guilty pleasure

Yep, I'm guilty of taking candid photos of people without them knowing I'm doing it.  OOPS! Are they in the middle of a disagreement?

 3. Lucky

When I was growing up, the kids in my neighbourhood believed ladybugs were lucky. We all hoped one would land on us because we KNEW we'd have a lucky day. This one is burying its head but you can still see it's a ladybug.

 4. Heart

An X-rated heart seen on a nature walk last week.  The heart is out-of-focus on one side but you get the idea.


5. Window

I'm thinking this window could be straight out of Hansel and Gretel...except it's not made of frosted gingerbread. Well, I didn't taste it, but I'm pretty sure it's not made of cookies and candy.

Your pictures are just amazing! Even the details on the leaves and the dragonfly shot...and the osprey's sharp beak!!! Have you been a professional photographer...your photos continue to astound me!

Maybe the cookies and candies are inside.

Image of bird is really nice. It looks so wonderful as it sits and looks out into the blue!

It does look like that couple may have been having few words!

I do like the osprey.

You made me smile this morning I do hope a year from now that couple does not find you:):):) but they are very photogenic. Love the lucky lady bug and xrated dragonflies. Hug B

You bring back great memories on your 'hunt' today. Well, except for the argument... with a girl. I could dream... ah.

Annemor said...

I fell for the X-rated dragonflies,
and the not so smiling young lady.
Have a nice day.

It looks to me that the couple is not agreeing on something. Such things are my guilty pleasure also.

Your Heart dragon fly photo is awesome.

William Kendall said...

Oh yes, that couple were having words. The osprey looks quite distinctive.

Mary said...

I really enjoyed your interpretations. The close-ups are amazing. A macro lens is on my guilty pleasure wish list.

Rose said...

Oh, I love all these...even the candid one. It sure looks like a lively discussion at least. Love Hansel and Gretal's house...yep, I would give it that name.

great shots. I love the dragonfly heart.

Martha Jane Curtis said...

Great photos. The arguing couple was a great shot. I like the lady bug, too.

Kathy said...

Great captures for the scavenger hunt. My favorites are the osprey, the couple and of course that sweet little window.

Hannah said...

Your photos are great. I especially love the delicate little damselflies. I always thought they were such a beautiful color and form as a child, I wanted to get close but then they would fly a little farther away with every step. The heart shape is charming, what contortionists! I guess they can't just fly away in that position!

Marie said...

Great Scavenger Hunt photos! Perfect for each subject!

Naomi said...

Great captures for the hunt. I've never heard of ladybugs being lucky but how lucky to have caught him on camera. Like the window, too.
