Bison relaxing in the heat...

at Cedar Meadows Wilderness Park, here in Timmins, On.

These fellows are usually further back in the wooded area where they live, I took a drive by, the other day and caught this one lazing in the open near the fence. There were two of them and the other one was laying in the mud trying to get some relief from the flies. This one done his best to ignore me, I whistled, sang, yelled, it didn't matter, he would not look at me... :)

a drive on a country road...

Loved the green barn with the yellow crop (canola, I think), so soothing and the Ewe was one of many heading for a pile of hay, suppertime!!!

Dad Osprey keeping guard....

Mom had just flown off, when I arrived..this is on the 1000 Island parkway in Southern Ontario near Ivy Lea. This is an artificial nest platform that was installed years ago as part of the Osprey recovery program.

We seen many of these platforms a few years ago when we went out to the East Coast.

Black Squirrel..

In Kingston, Ontario, at our campsite.

I love to feed the squirrels, chippies and the birds while on holidays, a bag of birdseed and peanuts are staples in our trailer...

Tigerlilies in all their beauty...

at our campsite in Ivy Lea, On...

What's for lunch?

This fellow was quietly sitting on a lily pad near our campsite in Ivy Lea, Ontario,
I got many shots of frogs at different locations during our holidays, I think this may be my favorite!

Rub a dub dub Robin..

The birds are loving my new birdbath, it is deep and I change the water every day, so I do have regulars who come and enjoy during this hot summer we are experiencing here.
Caught this fellow yesterday, taking a dip and giving me the 'look'...lol

"Your eyes are bigger than...

your stomach"..my mom used to say this phrase to me when I would be wolfing down my favorite foods..did your mom ever say it to you?

Seeing this, yesterday, made me think about the phrase. It did give me a smile anyway.

While sitting on a park bench at our local Gilles Lake park, I noticed this seagull trying his best to eat this fish..it was kind of funny to watch actually..he did eventually give up and put his foot on it on the ground and continued to tear it into smaller pieces and ate to his hearts content.
