Talons Thrust Forward

Since it is getting late in the birding season in Southern Ontario, I made some time in my schedule to visit Hendrie Valley yesterday.

Niagara Parkway Challenge

On occasion I like to create some photographic challenges for myself. Today I decided that I would venture out to a familiar area and allow myself only one photograph for each stop that I made.
