To be technically accurate, here are some photos I took after June 21. Not that I’m partial to the colour yellow, but that’s mostly the colour of our summer woods, greenish yellow.
Sometimes you can see dots of pink, the Alberta wild rose:
or tiny red fruits:
Golden cattails by the water before they ripen into brown candlesticks:
The Pond in summer is quiet. In contrast, the woods host a cacophony of songs and calls, like the tuning of strings and woodwinds before a symphony concert, albeit finding the actual sources is difficult, let alone taking photographs of them. The blurry pics just show how hard it is to find them staying still in the clearing for more than 2 seconds.
Migratory songbirds too are mostly yellow here, like this Wilson’s Warbler with his black cap. You might be surprised, but we don’t have any red birds like the Cardinals:
The Baltimore Oriole:
The American Goldfinch:
In the tree, there’s a tiny spot of silvery blue… the Tree Swallow waiting for lunchtime:
Some can’t wait, like this hungry Robin:
or this Yellow Warbler. Whatever’s in your mouth, mosquito or fly, I’ve to say, ‘Thank you for eating!’
