Last evening…wedged  between two large trunks of the maple.  Mommy was way up higher, snoozing.

They stayed there until they heard our voices as I talked with a neighbor…..and then….scrambled up to Mommy to be safe and sound……….

…my garden……..

…look what flew over at lunch – a VROA Lancaster – WW II heavy bomber….

Under the umbrella at lunch hour today, I captured this very old plane from the 2nd World War, a Lancaster VROA heavy bomber, being able to carry the heaviest bombs in the war.  It was travelling very low….and very slow, with a deep rumbling sound.

Built by our famous Avro for the Royal Air Force, it started flying in 1942.  There are only a few left in the world, two being here in Canada.  What a special catch for me.

And especially special, because I used manual settings, manual focus on the fly with my 105 macro lens, which is what was attached to the camera (flower hunting you know).
