Thanks. It looked like an orchid to me but I wasn't sure. It was beautiful in any case.

This is so neat ... thanks for posting.

Great shot

Alison Unnamed spotting
Unnamed spotting commented on by Alison Ontario, Canada12 years ago

It could have been larger than 1 1/2 inches. It was certainly much larger than any "bug" I've seen around here before and my partner thinks it was closer to 2 1/2 inches. I saw it take off and catch the moth; just as I was trying to focus my camera the first time, it took off and flew around a bit like a bat does when it's hunting. When it landed, it flipped on its back and was holding the moth. I'm glad I didn't try to pick it up if it bites.

That could be it. There is a pond nearby and with the recent warm weather, it might have recently emerged from hibernation. Thanks!

Great photo. Red-headed woodpeckers have almost disappeared from where I live (central Ontario). You're so lucky to have them.

Alison Common Loon?
Common Loon? commented on by Alison Lat: 45.00 Lon: -65.1612 years ago

I'm inclined to agree that's it's a common loon (up here I've only ever seen them in breeding plumage) but the lack of a white throat is what's throwing me off. Perhaps it's the same individual who's a bit different from the norm that I keep seeing. I've never head them call in the Bay of Fundy where these photos were taken but I hear them all the time at my home in Ontario often early in the morning when they are flying overhead.

The beak looks a bit long for a sparrow. I'm wondering if it's a female red winged blackbird. They're certainly found in swamps. Great shots whatever it is.

Don't think that's it. St. John's Wort grows here, but the flowers have larger petals.

What an amazing picture. I saw these guys when I was in the US Virgin Islands on holiday but I never managed to get a photo that wasn't back-lit.
