Dragonfly Cannibalism

I’ve posted about this before, but I just felt like bringing it up again. This happened a few years ago at my family’s cottage: The guy on the bottom is the living dragonfly. This unlucky specimen is the head of the guy on top, whose mouth continued to move the whole time. Yet another thing I had never known could happen (both the cannibalism and the disembodied head moving for an hour or two afterward), discovered up north. Have you ever seen something like this? … Continue reading

Bears in a Tree

Here are the bears we saw cooling off in a tree on a very hot day a few weeks ago near Grundy Lake. Of course, the first time I forgot my camera at the cottage before a boat ride was the first time I ever saw a baby bear peeking out of the bushes along the lake. Lesson learned. NEVER. LEAVE.

Weird

It turned out of course as many know by now that the body found up north from my last post was that of Shana Carter, missing since December 2010 from her Grimsby residence.  Everything about this story is a little too close to home, geographically, for me.  It’s scary for us smaller-town people to realize this stuff happens outside of the bigger cities.  It’s equally scary to think that we drove past and looked into that little nook of the woods a hundred times over … Continue reading

Body Found in Northern Ontario

Drove past this scene on the way back from vacation last Saturday: Uncustomary to the densely-forested area there were four OPP vehicles and a forensics unit (thank you Miklos for noticing that, I would never have known myself).  Cops everywhere and a familiar clearing we often dart our eyes toward to look for moose was yellow-taped off.  Originally my thoughts were: 1) Hunting accident. 2) ATV accident.  3) Body parts. Body found in Lost Channel (Smith’s Bay Road) So far this is the only article … Continue reading

Fireman

Yes.  Thanks to my sister and my niece for the props for this shot.  And actually my niece for creating the ‘fire’.  Long exposures are fun.  I want to a bunch more now that I’ve remembered that. Share the post “Fireman” FacebookTwitterGoogle+PinterestStumbleUponE-mail

Is that real ketchup? Yep!

I’m normally a summer person, but it’s going to be mid-temp today and I actually don’t mind it.  Yesterday I remembered how much I loved a hot coffee instead of just liked it as a morning routine, and today it actually motivated me to wake up before 8am on my first day of vacation.  Shit!  It’s so good! You ever type something and at the same time someone else says that same thing? I don’t. Why is there an actually ‘cut’-looking version of the Koodo … Continue reading
