I had a peak – the nest is beside our deck which is already raised about 3-4 feet off the ground. I stood on a chair and reached my arm around the post – so more of a sneaky shot from a funny angle which was marginally close – not directly close…to the nest. Momma robin was watching from the tree…but luckily she decided not to dive bomb me…

Handcar

“A handcar (also known as a pump trolley, pump car, jigger, Kalamazoo, velocipede, or draisine (powered or unpowered)) is a railroad car powered by its passengers, or by people pushing the car from behind. It is mostly used as a maintenance of way or mining car, but it was also used for passenger service in some cases. A typical design consists of an arm, called the walking beam, that pivots, seesaw-like, on a base, which the passengers alternately push down and pull up to move the car.” en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Handcar

We encountered this one hidden away in the Mediterranean gardens the Royal Botanical Gardens in Burlington, Ontario.

Ducks – becoming habitat

ducks-pool

Each year these ducks visit this backyard swimming pool. It’s a prime wetland found within an oasis of subdivisions and concrete. In this encounter, ducks and pool tarp are entangled in a happening…in a becoming habitat. A fleeting moment which, when the weather warms up, will disappear as the neighbours ready their pool for summertime. And which will reappear as summer fades.
