Lightning behind Peterborough, Ontario’s Market Hall Clock Tower during Thursday nights big storm.
Here is another shot from the new Solar Farm that is located 5 minutes from my home. I have a feeling that I will be shooting this place a lot, and trying to capture it with different moods.
The fall colours have arrived here in Peterborough. Probably not as spectacular as Algonquin Park, but I enjoyed getting out today and creating a few images, close to home.
The first two photos where taken at the Peterborough Liftlock.
There is a great spot that overlooks the colourfull canopy of trees covering Peterborough. Unfortunately a big Walmart ruins the chances of taking a nice wide angle photograph of it.

Today I photographed two species of bird. The first one is very common and the second one is rare in the area.
First up is the common, Great Blue Heron, Ardea herodias
and now for the rare, American Avocet, Recurvirostra americana
Unfortunately the bird was to far for a decent photo.
This Least Chipmunk (Tamias minimus) was photographed on the Beaver Pond Trail in Algonquin Park.
Osprey (Pandion haliaetus) perched on a branch overlooking the Otonabee River in Peterborough, Ontario.
A Common Snapping Turtle (Chelydra serpentina), makes the dangerous trek across the road. I assisted the turtle after taking this photograph. Peterborough has a facility called the Kawartha Turtle Trauma Centre, dedicated to helping turtles that have been injured by vehicles
While wading out into a pond to photograph Midland Painted Turtles, this Common Grackle (Quiscalus quiscula) landed on the reeds near me. At first I thought it had nesting material that it had gathered, but on closer inspection I realized it was some sort of dragonflies or dragonfly larvae.
