West Perth Wetlands

Spring is such a rich season for photography. Wildlife flirts, blossoms sing, and the air alternates between moist and sunny.

As serene as this scene appears, birds are singing, bees are buzzing in prolific numbers, and the mosquitoes are having a feast. Still, I linger, hunting for the source of that one song that thrills me.

The Canada Geese appear to be having a bit of a domestic, while a mother duck herds her young through the cover of reeds.

A splash alerts to me the presence of a mammal – a beaver, I think.

And then, high up in tree, I spot the source of my delight:

A Baltimore Oriole!

Another glorious morning in backroads Ontario.

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.
