Slowly the weather is starting to warm up here in St. Jacobs. These apple blossoms were taken in May of last year.

So Spring is officially here but so is the snow. Thankfully it is not melting so fast as to cause flooding and the occasional flurry makes us wonder if we’ll ever see the new life spring brings. I took this shot last spring and post is today as reminder of what is to come!


Bridge Over The River Conestogo

Train Crossing the Conestogo River

The Waterloo Central Railway run this diesel train as well as a steam train between Waterloo and St. Jacobs. They also run up to Elmira for special occasions. This was taken in St. Jacobs crossing the Conestogo River.

Taken a few weeks ago in Southampton Ontario. The weather is starting to warm up a little now so hopefully I will be able to bring you a nice sunset shot from this location this summer!

This Pariquin Falcon was the last Raptor to pose for us at the Mountsberg Raptor Centre. They were all equally beautiful and amazing!

Taken at the Mountsberg Raptor Centre where many of these birds have permanent injuries which have left them incapable of surviving on their own in the wild. Often, these injuries are caused by human activity. Now they live at the centre and provide visitors a chance to experience them up close and learn how we can reduce our negative impact on them.

This Red Tail Hawk is another of the Raptors at the Mountsberg Raptor Centre that we had the pleasure of photographing. They are truly magnificent creatures!
