Last night, I went to visit some good friends at their house. We had a BBQ with burgers and corn on the cod then we relaxed by a bond fire with marshmallows.

It was quite magical. My friends have a gorgeous garden that I love taking pictures of.  As I was getting ready to take pictures of their flowers for the millionth time, what looked like a tiny hummingbird came by. My friend pointed out that it was not a hummingbird but a Snowberry Clearwing or commonly known as a Hummingbird Moth. I was immediately fascinated by this little skilled flyer and I grabbed my camera to follow him. He moved very fast, much like a hummingbird, and it was quite hard to get a good shot that was not blurry. What I loved about this little cutie was the fact that he was quite friendly and did not mind me getting very close to him. It was amazing!

The garden also had little frog visitors such as the Northern Leopard Frog and cute green tree frogs.

A Walk Through the Garden: 2014 Edition

Friends of mine have a beautiful garden and every year, I go around and take a lot of pictures. There is something so serene and wonderful about flowers. Their colours, their shapes, their scents…. Everything about them is beautiful! I recently got a remote for my camera and wanted to see how clear the pictures would be. I think I need more practice with the tripod!
