I went for a drive today in Larose Forest and saw this large turtle crossing the road.  I wanted a shot on his level, but didn't check my focus until I got home.  I was disappointed to see that my focus is slightly in front of the turtle.  One more reason to check my shots before I leave!

So this one will have to do:

Bruno has long white whiskers and all of them point out and down, except for one which curls up like a fancy moustache!

The new lawn tractor arrived today.  Just in time too, as our backyard needs a harvester to cut the grass.

This is not a friendly cat, so when she climbed on Andy's lap for a nap, I just had to take a photo.

Happy Mother's Day to my friends!  We spent the day at ComicCon here in Ottawa.  It was a blast!

Here are waiting in line to get in.  We made sure to get their before the doors opened at 10AM and the lineup wasn't too bad. 

Lucas sitting in the Grand Torino that they used for Starsky & Hutch. 

Adam Baldwin from Firefly.

Lou Ferrigno, better known as The Hulk.

John DeLancie, "Q" from Star Trek: TNG.

Brent Spiner, Data from Star Trek: TNG.  I had crept up the line to get a shot of him and he caught me taking his photo.

Marina Sirtis, "Deanna Troi" from Star Trek: TNG. 

It was a fun day and it was cool to see the celebrities.

The photo theme today was "Up".  I love summer clouds - they're big and fluffy!

Another rainy day yesterday.

Today's theme was "Mother".  Since my Mom is no longer with us, I have to go sifting through my old scanned photos for one of her.  This is my Mom, 18 years old, in 1944.

Finishing up portraits tonight at the Aviation Museum in Ottawa for 51 Squadron Air Cadets.  This is my setup.  The foot stool is for me for the really tall cadets!

Today's theme is "trees".  I go in search of pussy willow trees in the early spring.  They are one of the first signs here. The trees get a green haze to them and the willows bud!

Next week's photo challenge is "Mother".
