Minus Twenty

Out this morning doing birdy things at -20C windchill. Mad, yes perhaps but we enjoy it. This tree is on the entrance road to the Arboretum and I have photographed it several times over the years but this is the best, I think. Nothing wrong with my older cameras, nothing at all, but this new one finds colours and details the others can’t really manage. Great 3-D effect too.

Great Spangled Fritillary

To help with the Nature Conservancy Of Canada five nation; “Bioblitz” we spent some time in Arboretum identifying species … this was one of the stars. Their caterpillars grow on wild violets on the edges of woodland.
