Natural Splendour of the Arrow Lake

Wednesday’s Photos

Hard Evidence for Spring’s Glorious Arrival

After a long and dreary winter, spring has finally arrived. Being four weeks late here in the Arrow Lake region, nature is literally exploding into action. The photos below have all been shot on a single day last week: one at the Fauquier boat dock, two at home, and the other two at the Taite Creek Campsite 10 km south of our small community. Each photo is glorious testimony for the miracle of life through the re-awakening of nature after winter’s long resting period. Enjoy.

  1. Its your photo skills that are glorious. Just so impressed with photos, esp the first one. Is that a birch tree? I miss the “earings”. As kids in ukraine, we would put them on our own ears for fun 🙂

  2. Oh, my—that hummingbird!! Stunning photo, Peter. And what is that in the top photograph? All just lovely. I love spring—but not as much as I love summer.

  3. Hummingbirds in Canada, I was not aware of this. But honestly from diverse ornithological excursions I know how difficult it is to simply see a lot of birds (quite often only possible with a binocular in large distance of up to 200 m). Therefore my conpliments for this shot!

    1. They are very watchful little critters. When they see you filling up their feeders, in gratitude they allow you to approach them as close as a few meters. Thanks for the compliment!

  4. Aaawwww, you have hummingbirds! Such a great portrait! I am looking forward to next week’s post.

    The photos are beautiful, no doubt about it.

    Yes, nature is really exploding, we watch the same happening here in Denmark. May has been like summer during the last two weeks, very unusual, but we don’t complain, no, no, we don’t!
