Flower Dance

I have been blessed to have known these two people for nearly all my life.

We have enjoyed many a visit/hour lifetime together.



 And let the dance begin

Hunting the wild Canadian Tiger

 After our friend Ken posted what he and Susan had seen a 'big, black thing' sitting in one of the roosts 75 feet above the ground  on June 8, I went back on Wed June 16. I did not expect to see much because bears are so camera-shy.

Even more shy are tigers, especially Canadian tigers in the wild:



When I saw the stripes moving in the undergrowth, I froze stock still and waited:

Would it step out into the clearing?

Nothing is sharp - was I really that nervous? Or was it the excitement?

A quick glimpse:

Still a lot of fuzz, but definitely not Snoopy -

However, finally my "luck" changed and I had some clear shots at the Canadian Tiger - a hard Tail to Swallow!

Better luck next time - WOB

The "Hand of Man" - the barrier between us and Nature

 I spent several hours walking alone yesterday.  I took over 300 photos - so where to start?

This was the first one.

And it seemed to me then as now that my world is very strongly divided. I talked to this bird and it reassured me that it hoped to "make it". It gave me some hope, too. Maybe you will understand?

A "Forest" of Arrowheads

 Not too far from where I live - looking South -

and looking North .

and looking East for the quest:

Arrowheads, up but not yet in bloom. Maybe between 30 and 50 per meter of ditch.

Below -

And in between:

And all in the name of Arrowheads:

Maybe in a couple more weeks there will be some flowers.
