June 28, 2015Mongoose in HawaiipamwolffWaikoloa Village, HI, June 3, 20153891The mongoose was introduced to the Hawaiian Islands by the sugar plantation owners in the hopes they would control the rat population. Mongooses ('mongeese' sounds better to me, but ins't right...) are strictly diurnal, however, and rats are mostly active at night, so, as the Hawaiians put it, the two species never met. The mongooses are perfectly happy to eat the eggs of birds and sea turtles, and so they have decimated the endemic bird populations, and don't help the turtles much, either.-8433370-4213
June 30, 2015Sunrise In NiagaraKenChambers568 Lincoln Avenue, Niagara-on-the-Lake, ON L0S 1J0, September 22, 20143802Taken in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Canada. I was driving along the grape fields hoping for a good shot. It seemed like a perfect day, nice fog, the sun wasn't out, but it was nice. My attempt to shoot grapes was failing though, and I began to drive home. On my left I saw this unfolding before my eyes.-320640-960

June 28, 2015My Mosquito eating hitman.JimMiddletonNorth Bay, ONJune 19, 20152796This handsome looking Dragonfly was following in my footsteps as I walked down Cranberry Road which had more than a few Mosquitoes lurking alongside the road in the dense vegetation. While it had help this Dragonfly was one awesome hitman for me, 'taking care' of some Mosquitoes and even a few pesky Deer Flies as I looked for things to photograph. When I stopped for a drink it stopped too, so of course I had to get his mugshot!-10003000-4000
June 28, 2015This is MY trail, you move!!JimMiddletonNorth Bay, ONJune 19, 20152657This tough, large sized Painted Turtle was out for a stroll on The Kate Pace Way a multipurpose trail that probably hadn't considered one of its purposes was as a Turtle highway. I was watching an American Bittern in the Beaver Pond with some friends when it decided to take its walk along the trail. It posed for a few quick pictures until a curious Ruby (cute dog) sniffed it into the pond, lol.-10003000-4000
