That was after he did this, and I as trying to get him to do it again.

Frog Day Afternoon

After that whole tree frog thing, and noticing frogs all OVER the place, I decided to take the real camera with a macro lens out to the park.

Please note that any mention of frog species is speculation.

I’m a bit sad about this one because there were originally three frogs there, but […]

Green Tree Frog

Found this guy while walking the dog today.

I didn’t have the good camera and the crappy camera was having trouble telling all the greens apart, so I had him climb my hand. As you can tell, he was really really thrilled.

He didn’t like this one because it makes him look fat. […]


In honour of World Turtle Day, and because I luckily stumbled on him while walking the dog, here is a photo of a painted turtle:

I know that doesn’t look very painted, but this is what they look like from the bottom:

There are tons of these guys at the park we walk […]

Gigi’s Birthday

I had a different photo planned for Gigi’s 9th birthday, but sadly we had no sun that day. So I snapped this on my phone.

I tried taking the original Gigi’s Birthday photo today but somehow managed to shoot a ton of out of focus pictures. Mrrrrrrrrr. I’m blaming the insane wind.



While taking the swan pics I posted earlier (as in, 30 seconds ago) I got this nice shot of lens flare a red-winged blackbird, which is one of my favourite birds.

Swan Song

I’ve been seeing these swans around here for a while now. Never when I have the camera, naturally. One time I rushed home and got the camera but by the time I got back, they were gone. Apparently they can fly away or something. I was starting to think that maybe I was imagining them.


Well this is a new one

I just went to let the dog out before bed, and found this guy on the screen door.

I was wondering how he got there and then he did this:

Which makes him evidently a tree frog.

I let him climb on my hand and put him outside.

I just realised […]

Mini Snapper

I found a tiny baby snapping turtle today. Ok, the dog found it, but hey.

Just to show how small it was, here it is in my hand.
