Natural Splendour of the Arrow Lake

Wednesday’s Photos

May Impressions from the Kootenays

April showers bring May flowers. We all know the saying. I collected a few photos, which lend support for its general truth. But here at the Arrow Lake I must add the humming birds, which visit our area with the regularity of a clock at the time the trees are beginning to bud. A dramatic cloud formation is nicely rounding off this week’s photo presentation. Enjoy.

    Beautiful! Especially the lake and dramatic clouds. But every one is a keeper. And I especially like that shot of the bee, head down in what I think is “bee balm.”

    Once the plants start it goes fast, does it not? Beautiful colours! And the bird, so cute. The clouds are truly dramatic. Cloudy skies are often the most interesting.

    Your subtitle “May Impressions from the Kootenays” reminds me of the scenic hours I spent in Kootenay National Park almost two years ago. You must be thrilled to live in such a scenic (if cold) part of the world.

      It is not as cold as you may think. I enjoy this four-season part of the world. Thanks for the kind comment, Steve!
