My fellow Flickr Photog Happy_Sleepy, shares these unique pieces of real Fish Art, over on her PhotoStream @ Happy_Sleepy and I was Lucky enough to find them last night. It was only fair. I couldn't help it. :-) I just Had to turn You , my readers, On to this splendid Fish Art and to introduce you as well, to a Very well rounded Photojournalist and multitalented woman, from my own home Province of Ontario. ;-)
There's an absolutely beautiful Brook Trout rendition too and a marvelous likeness of some Sticklebacks as well. Go have a look-see and let me know what You think of this Cool stuff. :-) I just Love getting comments on my little blogs! :-)
So here's a few great URL's to check out that I've recently discovered. Pretty informative and well written, all! Yup, there are a lot of people out there who are of similar mindset to this ol' Canucky dude. Nice to see it and to be able to spread the word, through so many channels...
Out in one of my favorite local Hardwood bushes, the old forest floor covers the Leek beds I've harvested from in the past. A walk through there, along side of the nicely flowing creek, last Sunday, produced the first specimens of 2009. The Ramps are Up! :-)
Many localities celebrate with Ramp Festivals this time of year. Is there one in your locality? None here in Ottawa, that I know of anyway, but that doesn't stop me from partaking in my ritual Spring Tonic, of Leek harvesting and fresh live food consumption. :-)
I also find them, from a photographic point of view, quite lovely in their own right. Do You agree?
What actually are they, I hear you ask? Why, Day Lilies of course! :-) These guys are one of my favorite wild foods and one which you can nourish yourself with any time of the year. I steamed these for about two minutes, then added a little fresh ground black pepper and a dab of butter to 'em for a Very tasty entree... :-) I'll be fetchin' more of these home this week-end to be sure.
