#ChickPicotheDay! (Day 2,372) I love this little church and drove past it the other day. One day I'll go in. For now I'll just admire her from here. Besides, God may say...."hey, where have you been the past 45 years?" #Church #Chapel #Pray #Worship #Sing #Choir #Quaint #Wooden #HouseofWorship #PraiseTheLord #Hamlet #Lyndedoch #NorfolkCounty #BrantfordPhotographer #CanonGirl #HeatherCardlePhotographer #FollowMe

#ChickPicotheDay! (Day 2,479) Let's grab coffees and watch the sun rise. See a fish jump. Watch some Loons swim by. Read a book. Just sit, sip and gaze. #Sunrise #BaptisteLake #OutontheDock #OnTheRedChairs #RedMuskokaChairs #MuskokaChairs #Serenity #Peaceful #Calm #Relaxing #StudioNorth #ComingForYouSoon #FollowMe #CanonGirl #BrantfordPhotographer #HeatherCardlePhotographer

#ChickPicotheDay! (Day 3,215) I'm really all over the map with my photos lately (long story). ALSO, a few folks asked to see more Loon pics, so why not back to back them eh? Anyhow, this Mama here, she's amazing. She's wise, she's protective, she's an all round great and caring Mama. She was gracious and allowed us to follow her along with her baby (from a safe distance). I hope to see her next summer. She's beautiful. I thought you should know. #CommonLoon #Loon #HeatherCardlePhotographer #Ka

#ChickPicotheDay! (Day 3,223) "The day her reflection spoke back to her, she escaped into the mirror world with it and never returned back to reality." ~Akshay Vasu I guess she didn't want to be a lamp anymore. • • • • • #Reflection #mirrorselfie #ThisOldHouse #BrantCounty #TheLadyintheMirror #Antiques #Artifacts #Wallpaper #HeatherCardlePhotographer

#ChickPicotheDay! (Day 2,346) In a previous life Mrs. Osprey was an architect, a very strong architect.

#ChickPicotheDay! (Day 2,512) Objects in camera are closer than they appear (1/2 hour later I made it to the shore beyond Stumpy Bay). Paddle slow, you see more.

#ChickPicotheDay! (Day 2,319) This is a bit closer to home, yet it is not. That's a bit of a clue to where it is. Perhaps you #BrantCounty folk may know? :) I wonder what it was back in the day? hmmmmmm #Old #boardedup #century #heritage #historical #Village #SmallTown #BuildingArtwork #Woodenhouse #palegreen #green #SpringDecor #BrantfordPhotographer #CanonGirl #HeatherCardlePhotographer #FollowMe

#ChickPicotheDay! (Day 3,225) I know, I know, it's fall. Life has been hectic 'round here. I'm "getting on it" but in the mean time, enjoy this black and white will ya? Thanks! • • • • • #Blackandwhite #ForestandLake #BaptisteLake #HastingsHighlands #OntarioNorth #HeatherCardlePhotographer

#ChickPicotheDay (Day 3,211) Mirroring. Baptiste Lake. Keeping things simple today. • • • • • #Mirrors #Reflections #Reflecting #BaptisteLake #HastingsHighlands #KayakCameraGirl #HeatherCardlePhotographer

#ChickPicotheDay! (Day 3,203) For some reason this reminds me of something I've seen in that movie Alien.It's kind of cool looking so obviously I took a photo of it. It also reminds me of an iceberg, 10% in focus and 90% a blur. Does that make sense to you? Gah! It's Saturday, maybe I should just go watch cartoons.... • • • • • #AlienPlant #PastBloom #BokahBokahBokah #Blurry #Oddity #HeatherCardlePhotographer #CartoonShowtime #Cartoons

#ChickPicotheDay! (Day 2,329) Great day to stay indoors and type about how crappy it is outside.

#ChickPicotheDay! (Day 3,213) I paddled past this gorgeous rock and I thought it resembled a brain. I did, don't laugh. What I can't decide is whether I like the colour or the black & white. What one do you prefer?? • • • • • • #Brain #BrainRock #KayakCameraGirl #HeatherCardlePhotographer #BlackandWhite #Undecided

#ChickPicotheDay! (Day 3,188) First I was going to make this caption all about spit and spitting which is pretty gross. Instead I believe this lady was playing that popular water game called "spouting" or "The Water Fountain Game" never mind...this caption is getting lamer and lamer by the second. Look at the Loon, it's spitting at me. #CommonLoon #Spitting #WaterFountain #Spout #Waterbird #Waterfowl #KayakCameraGirl #BaptisteLake #OntarioHighlands #HeatherCardlePhotographer #HastingsLoveLetter

#ChickPicotheDay! (Day 3,205) "I mushroom hunt because I have no morels." Happy Labour Day and I'm here all week folks! 🙂 • • • • • #Mushrooms #Shrooms #Morels #NaturesUmbrella #YellowMushroom #MellowYellow #HeatherCardlePhotographer

#ChickPicotheDay! (Day 3,217) A mushroom UFO has landed in the fairy forest. I did not consume anything prior to captioning this image. I just came up with it after half a coffee. Happy Saturday. The End. • • • • • #HeatherCardlePhotographer #Fairyland #Mushroom #UFO

#ChickPicotheDay! (Day 3,227) And finally, in case you were thinking that the Mama Loon got ripped off for a meal, you can see she snagged a bite finally. As most mom's do when they've got young 'uns afoot, they run you ragged and you barely have time to think about eating, let alone eat at mealtimes. Yay Mama Loon, hope you enjoyed the sushi! #CommonLoon #MotherLoon #Loon #LoonFishing #Fishing #Tidbit #LakeSushi #baptistelake #HastingsHighlands #KayakCameraGirl #HeatherCardlePhotographer

#ChickPicotheDay! (Day 2,722) "I think these are flowers, so I'll pick them for my mama or maybe I'll eat them. I'm not sure."

#ChickPicotheDay! (Day 3,226) My wildlife lookout buddy, oh so subtly directing me to where the heron was. If he could speak, I think he'd be saying in a high pitched voice..... "Hey #KayakCameraGirl, yo, woo hoo, the HERON is over here now!" or something like that. I think he looks cool and he was helpful. • • • • • #GreatBlueHeron #Stalking #Exploring #WildlifePhotography #DriftwoodFigurines #Driftwood #BlueSkies #BaptisteLake #KayakPhotography #HeatherCardlePhotographer

#ChickPicotheDay! (Day 2,523) What a feeling it was to get this shot by laying on my belly on a big old smooth rock. Now getting up from said rock, without smashing your camera, that's another kind of sensation. • • • • • #bellyrock #riverside #swiftcurrent #ragingwaters #waterfalls #HighFalls #AlgonquinPark #hiking #trails #AutumnInOntario #FallInOntario #Slippery #ShotOnCanon #BrantfordPhotographer #HeatherCardlePhotographer #FollowMe #CanonGirl
