Ruby-Throated Hummingbird...

and she is ready for lunch...

Baby Partridge..

or Spruce Grouse as some call it. While on a bike ride behind our camp a few weeks ago, came upon a
mom and five or six babies. This one poses for me before mom wandered off and they followed.
He wasn't squawking, more of a 'yawn' cute.

No internet out there, so some catching up to do.
Thanks again to everyone for your nice comments during our loss, much appreciated...

This fellow came to visit the other day...

Robin babies...

I took this first pic on June 16/11. Our son discovered a Robin had built this nest under their deck, so of course I had to take a few quick pics while mom was away.
 This one is taken on June 30/11, only one chick left in the nest, he jumped out that day too..

Our special angel..

Baby Brayden came into our lives on June 19, our first great-grandson. He is a very amazing little boy and so special to us. He has a few major problems and is pallative. It breaks our hearts, we are all loving him and keeping him comfortable. Although his little life will be short, he will know he was loved and always will be. He is our special angel.
He is the reason I haven't been on much, hard to take pics with tears in your eyes, a few of my contacts are
going through saddness right now, life is not fair some times but with God's grace we will get through it.
The doctors at Mc Master hospital in Hamilton sent him home with special instructions, "keep him comfortable, talk to him lots, tell him you love him and take lots of pics" well he is in the right family for all of those orders!!
Thanks everyone for all your prayers and thoughts over the last 3 weeks, I truly appreciate it!! :)

Green Nettle Weevil..

I took these a few weeks ago when we were in London, On.
I am assuming they are everywhere as I have photographed one, a few years ago at our camp, here.
He is walking along my 'plastic' glass and then he took off just as quick..
Here is what I did get..

 Also a Shadfly and his reflection on our trailer window..
