A Graphic Butterfly

I spotted yet another butterfly on a garage. This one is very hard-edge but would still be a welcome sight when arriving home. I couldn't make out the artist's name.

No Baseball For A While

 We have had very little snowfall this winter although we have had some since I took this shot a couple of weeks ago. It will be a couple of months until we see any ball games here on the main baseball diamond at Christie Pits Park. The park is surrounded by hills so it is a great place to sit on the grass and watch a game.

Just Pecking Away

Another shot from one of the trails along the Humber River by James Gardens. I first spotted this Hairy Woodpecker poking around on the ground which I thought was unusual but then he headed up onto this tree and had a fine time pecking away.

Beaver & Friends

 There is a house in the neighbourhood which has an assortment of metal creatures all along the top of their fence. The largest of this bunch is this beaver which guards the entrance to their side garden. I like the wee mouse and the dog with their scarves to keep them warm during the winter. Notice the chien bizarre sign - they did have a dog but I'm not sure if he is still around.

This is a section of the entrance to the bathing pavilion at Sunnyside Beach. I've always loved the pavilion and the lovely photo ops it presents. The curves and the columns in particular are striking.

 This sign was spotted in a laneway behind some commercial properties. I guess they have had some problems there. I smiled at the camera.

This little creature was spotted in the window of a building on Avenue Rd but there was no sign to say that it was a gallery, just the pieces. The large one is called Jump Hour  and the small one to the right is Ticking Time Bomb. It is hard to tell but they are totally covered in pieces from watches & clocks. The artist is Daniel Tanenbaum who calls himself a steampunk artist and who is known for making models of motorcycles from watch parts.
