Some snap shots in the late winter sun

2020 March 03

In the late winter, when the temperature is mild and the sun is shining and the wind is minimal, it is very pleasant to sit outside on our deck once again. The birds and the squirrels are active and they can be further encouraged by sunflower seeds and peanuts. Tuesday morning was such a day. Here are a few photos from our morning coffee.

Photo Sets Depicting Open Mic at Long Shots Have Moved

2020 February 22

Most visitors to this page, https://mcelroy.ca/news/, are expecting content about outdoor themes related to the upper Ottawa Valley and Algonquin Park (and maybe some family history). Consequently photo sets depicting Open Mic at Long Shots Sports Cafe will no longer appear here but will be found at http://mcelroy.ca/news/Long_Shots/. (However, particular open-mic photo sets can still be accessed from the sidebar and will show up in searches. Note that the sidebar is not present on some mobile devices.)

Marten

2020 February 16

Each winter we have one or more martens visiting our bird feeders. This winter we have three. Some winters, they are very bold; this year they are quite skittish. Today was the first day I managed to get any photos, although I hadn't tried very hard previously.

Some Early Winter Photos from Rapides des Joachims

2019 December 20

We had an early winter storm about a week ago that that coated everything in heavy wet snow, which subsequently froze. I finally got the opportunity to drive up to Swisha and take some photos in the sunshine. I didn't catch things at their peak, but it was still pretty scenic.
