Well, the last time I went to this part of Canada, I met a real Bird Whisperer who could call up wild birds and have them eat from his hands. He showed me how to do it too, but it didn't work once I got home. Maybe it only works in Quebec.

It's migration time for the geese and they were moving all over. I am kind of silly sometimes, so I called out for them to fly over the church, and was charmed when they turned and did just that (not all that gracefully, but they did give me what I asked for).

It's fun living vicariously through everyone here! S-

All the great photographers use cameras! No, really. :|
