OMG My very first video

    Sometimes you really are in the right place at the right time.

    I went for a roll along the bike paths. I crossed the Ottawa River and followed the bike path.

    One of the things I missed the most about moving to Manitoba was the changing of the leaves. Ottawa is beautiful in the fall and I'm lovin it. I went out 3 days ago and there was the odd tree here and there that had started to change. Today's tour showed fall is coming. More trees are changing but it will get better as the days go on.

    I stopped on a small bridge and watched the water. It was odd because instead of the water running out of the small brook and into the larger river it seemed to be going in the other direction. There was a small path leading off the main path so I took it and it brought me to a bench with a nice view of the little brook. So intent on the colors I almost missed the movement on the far side of the brook. Then I saw it.

    A Great Blue Heron was cautiously stalking the far side of the brook. I can upload a single image but the video is huge so I'll have to find a way to make it smaller. In the meantime here's a good view


    As I was about to leave I head a small sound at my feet. I looked down and saw a chipmunk. Too bad he was too fast for me to take his picture

    If this were in black and white I'd say you were channeling Ansel Adams

    That is such a cool picture. Those birds are beautiful. The only time that I get to see something like this where I live, is when someone has one of those plastic lawn flamingos in their flower bed.

    Lady Lee,

    Great picture and nice account of what happened. Thanks for sharing. I live near Chicago, so the closest I get to nature are the Canadian Geese that swim in the retention ponds around town. These are decorated nicely to look park-like. Geese in general are not afraid of humans, and Canadian Geese especially seem to care less about traffic as they cross over major busy roads with their flocks and chicks. They just stroll and take their time, and honk at us as we scramble to stop for them. I truly love to see them, they are a source of beauty and humor.
