About the Picture

I spent a pleasant afternoon photographing Yellow Warblers at the Guelph Lake Nature Centre in the summer of 2004.  Plopping myself down on a folding camp stool with the camera on a monopod, the birds quickly became used to my presence.  The warblers were chasing each other, swooping and swirling around bushes and trees.  After about 15 minutes, they became used to my presence and added me to their obstacle course, speeding past no more than two feet away at times.  The result was some great full-frame shots.  This one was taken as one of the warblers took a 30 second rest about 8 feet away on a twig.

Welcome to Nature's Best Creations on-line

It can be surprising the pure variety of wildlife that abounds practically everywhere in North America.  Upon hearing that there are hundreds of varieties of birds that are either resident in Southern Ontario, or who pass through during migration, one might look around and think "where?".  All one has to do, is to look around, with open eyes and ears.

From Cardinals, to Chickadees, to warblers and water birds, one doesn't have to go far to find nature's best creations.  Featuring original bird and wildlife photography from Southern Ontario, Nature's Best is a showcase for the varied bird and wildlife that abounds in Guelph, Wellington County, and surrounding areas.
