There is a boardwalk over Lake Gibson in Thorold that I first saw only last weekend. Last night Dave and I took a trip out to the park to check it out.

20060830.jpg

I haven't done much shooting in the past few weeks. When that happens, I look at my most willing subject... me.

22. For Leanne

20060822.jpg

Leanne asked me to take this photo for her. She has been watching a lot of wedding websites looking for photo ideas for our wedding and this was something she liked.

21. Lady on Beach

20060821.jpg

A lady walks her dog on the beach on an early Sunday morning. The energetic dog ran back and forth in and out of the water, chasing a ball, digging in the dirt until he was half in the hole, and sitting, obeying his master.

20. Eastern Tailed Blue

20060820.jpg

This is another Eastern Tailed Blue. These are very small butterflies, maybe the size of my thumbnail. They move their wings up and down a little and while they do, the tails resemble antenna so that if a predator takes a bite, the only get the wing, not the head.

Well, he is really a grasshopper, not a cricket. But I don't know any grasshopper names.

16. A Painterly Place (Reprise)

20060816.jpg

I posted this same shot a few days ago in colour. I converted to black and white for an article I am writing for my friends newsletter at PCIN.NET. I liked the conversion so I thought I would post it here.

09. An Unknown Traveler on the River Grand

20060809.jpg

This is another tuber on the Grand River at the Elora Gorge Conservation Area. The ride certainly looks like fun. Maybe I will get a chance to do it next year.

06. Black Swallowtail

20060806.jpg

Found this guy in my garden after a rain storm the other night. Looked like he was feasting on my parsley. I believe it is (or will be) a black swallowtail butterfly. After taking some photos of him, I let him go.

01. Beetle on Butter and Eggs

20060801.jpg

This spotted ladybug was not my intended focal point for this photo, but once I got closer to the flowers, decided she should be in there.
