Jan 24 2016 Many Monkeys!

In my time in Costa Rica I did not see many monkeys on the first half of the trip, but when I went to Tortuguero national park.. They just kept appearing, made me sad I did not make it to the region with Squirrel monkeys!

Jan 13 2016 Frogs!

I have always had a soft spot Amphibians for as long as I can remember, which is why I tried to get as many pictures of them as I could. I took a lot but most were either asleep or in very bad light for pictures.. these are a few of the best.

Long Point Conservation Area May 2015

I have take a break in posting some of my pictures but that does not mean I have not been taking them. I have found that I was just in the mood to post them.. hard to describe why but I hope that ends today. I will say I do love walking around Conservation areas in the off season, here was a place that has camp and trailer sites everywhere but better the May long weekend the beach and the forest around was just so quiet and so peaceful.. It is always worth a walk around.

I absolutely love bugs, as summer turns to fall one of the things that makes me sad is that soon, the familiar buzz in the grass and in the trees is going to disappear for the winter. It seem I am almost the only one who feels this way, everyone else is glad to see them go.  When I go on hikes I always enjoy just hearing and feeling the life around me and so here are few pictures of some of the insects I came across this summer.

April 18 2014 More Wanderings

I will admit I was worried about moving back to Toronto because I love being outside in natural places. The city I find wears down upon me after a while.. However, I love that I can still go out and find places like this. I went up north and walked along a snowmobile trail for a while until I came across a lake. Here is what I found.. I think I might have to come back here with a kayak at some point this summer.

 

December 27 2013 Work of Art that Swims

Coin

This was a picture I have long wanted to take.. Since I was around 1o years old my childhood pets were these two newts, Ron-tu and Fig are their names and after 20 years they are still going strong! I have tried to take many pictures of them but they never looked very good through the glass or through the water, except for this one of Ron-tu.. don’t know what it is about it but it is a though someone painted him on canvas. 🙂
