Twig and Berries

Saskatoon Berries

Not that kind!

There’s a great series of pathways by where we live, and while walking through them this Summer, we found a whole whack of saskatoonberry bushes. In all honesty, I’d never had saskatoonberries before. I know, right! Where have I been? At any rate, we picked a few small bags full, and enjoyed many of them on our walk home.

Itsy, Bitsy Spider


I found this little “guy” dancing along the cotton cord supporting my peas this Summer. It’s really nice to see spiders and other beneficial critters hanging-out in a garden, it means there’s stuff for them to do and they’re doing it. My middle Elfling wasn’t too pleased to see him/her, but she’ll be ok.  ;0)


I kept watching this spider, and snapping shots. I’m loving the intricacies of this little being. Wow!


It’s super-cool to capture flora and fauna on film or in a digital format. It’s one of my favourite things to do at any given time, just snap photos and see what I can use.

These photos were taken with my Canon EOS Digital Rebel XS.

Because I waited…

Blue Dragonfly

…I was able to snap several photos of a massive, blue and black dragonfly who frequents our backyard. I feel so lucky to have these shots and these visits. Ever since I was a little girl, I would wonder if dragonflies weren’t fairies in disguise, and this was just the form we were able to see them from our dimension. Seeing a similar point of view woven into the mythology of Pan’s Labyrinth was a relief to me. ;0)
