I originally posted this many years ago (in 2005) and looking at it now I could make it better.   I reprocessed it, darkening some slightly out of focus leaves and fixing a few others, while of course, making a better monochrome image.

I am much more please with this version.

The Tiny Ram's Head Lady Slipper

The is the second of two Ram’s Head Lady Slippers I am posting. We were lucky that these were growing under a tree near the trail where we were able to access them without disturbing the environment they were growing in. How small is small? Take a look at this.

Ram's Head Lady Slipper Orchid

We were lucky to have found these. They are quite rare and are protected at Singing Sands Beach in the Bruce Peninsula National Park.

Dragon Fly on Birdsfoot Trefoil

This is a dragon fly resting on a piece of Birdsfoot Trefoil.  Photographed early in the morning, the dragonfly and flower are still covered in dew.  It is hard to see in this size, but I am picking up reflections of the sky in the dew drops.

This photo was obviously not shot recently :)   I will be mixing recent photos along with photos from last year that did not get post, though should have during my bouts of non posting. Feel free to comment on some of the photos.

Resting

Scott found this Fritillary one morning late last summer while out shooting.  With it’s wings closed we could see he was a little beaten up. It wasn’t until he had warmed up enough to spread his wings that I saw just how bad he really was.

The second butterfly Scott found was in much better shape.

This is the full colour version of yesteday’s photo which I had converted to black and white except for the orange in the buttefly’s wing.

I found this butterfly on this piece of grass just beside the car. We were parked on the side of the road where we had stopped to photograph Lubilia. I am sure he was there when we parked and I missed him. Definitely one of those lucky finds!

Crescent Spot on Foxtail

This is the first butterfly I’ve shot of the season. This is a Crescent Spot and is perched upon a piece of foxtail barley. In order to get photos like this I am getting up a little before 4:00 am in order to get to the location and be ready to shoot just after the sun has risen.

A couple of tips on early morning photography may be read at http://potd.chrisempey.com/tips/archives/2007/08/very_early_morning_photography.php.

Hepatica in the Spring

I shot this while out with my father a while back.  Hepatica is one of the earlier wildflowers to bloom in my area. About the same time as Dutchman’s Breeches and before the Trilliums are up.  This was found protected under a fallen tree.

Other photos of Hepatca can be found here, Dutchman’s Breeches here and Trilliums here.

On another note, I have been using WordPress for a week now and am still working on getting it to behave how I would like it to.  If you have experienced any errors or have any comments, please fill out the comment form and let me know.
