Humming Birds

Flying Gracefully This picture was shown on the 6 o'clock news on June 2
These birds are very Territorial
Olga took the bottom one

We have 2 humming birds coming to the feeder one is calm and sits down, the other is always moving. When they came back this year they were flying in front of the window as if asking: "Why is our feeder not out yet?"

Magic spot

At Camp Wyoka the kids had to find a "Magic spot" and look and listen to their surroundings.
All the kids were supposed to be in separate spaces near the path in the bush.
The Ontario flower, the Trillium
Beauty in decay

My Magic spot

Close to Marc's magic spot

Camp Wyoka

School trip, we were the black team. Learning about environment with lots and lots of bugs flying around us.

We did some fun things like going down an embankment with a rope.

The leaders were high school students who get also credits for art.

Here they were pretending to be pirates.

Digging for treasure at the beach

All the boys are using the bug nets in this picture but only 1 of the girls
