Butterfly Surprise

have you ever seen a tagged butterfly?

I love getting up close to bees and butterflies but when I saw this monarch I thought someone had played a cruel trick.

When I got home and took a closer look at the photo I checked out what I saw on the tag. Monarch Watch is a real thing. If you’d like to learn more about this organization check it out https://monarchwatch.org/tagging/index.html#recoveries

Sculpture Saturday – Sept. 19, 2020

thanks to Ruined for Life for hosting Sculpture Saturday https://smkelly8.com/2020/09/12/sculpture-saturday-36/

This week at WAAC (Women’s Art Association of Canada), I was helping clean up the gardens. As we were pulling out the weeds and trimming back some of the shrubs I discovered some hidden gems. The large sculpture of course was always visible but the two smaller ones were a surprise for me.

Pull Up a Seat Photo Challenge – Sept. 18, 2020

….thanks to Xingfu Mama for hosting the https://xingfumama.blog/2020/09/18/pull-up-a-seat-photo-challenge-2020-week-38/

Earlier this week I drove to the Women’s Art Association of Canada or WAAC building downtown to help clean up the garden in the back. They are suppose to be hosting a wedding this Saturday. Our COVID numbers were coming down in Ontario but recently they have started to spike again. There is talk of lowering the number of people allowed to gather in outdoor spaces again but the organizers don’t think that this will affect the wedding this weekend where about 30 people are expected to attend.

Hopefully these chairs will be in use on Saturday. If not it’s for a good reason.

Water, Water Everywhere – #43

thanks to Jez for hosting Water, Water Everywhere https://jezbraithwaite.blog/2020/08/31/broadwood-loch-water-water-everywhere-43/

I’m always near water. At home I have Lake Ontario 100m from my house and at the cottage I live by Georgian Bay. This is the view from the park at the bottom of my street in Toronto. I never get tired of seeing this skyline.

There’s been a lot of rebuilding going on in my neighbourhood. Older homes are being torn down and replaced with more modern structures.

A Photo a Week Challenge – Tower

…thanks to Nancy Merrill for hosting the Photo a Week Challenge

Toronto has one of the most famous towers in the world. The CN Tower was the tallest standing structure in the world for decades.

The CN Tower held the record for the world’s tallest free-standing structure for 32 years until 2007 when it was surpassed by the Burj Khalifa, and was the world’s tallest tower until 2009 when it was surpassed by the Canton Tower. It is now the ninth tallest free-standing structure in the world and remains the tallest free-standing structure on land in the Western Hemisphere.
