Owl pictures taken at Wizard World 2015 Toronto
This Owl looked to be about 18 inches or so tall. The birds were tethered to a perch at Wizard World at a Falcon display.
This little Owl wasn't much bigger than a Pigeon as you can see by the size of the clasp holding the bird.

An Egret (also known as a Great White Heron)
I took these pictures of a white egret near the Humber Bay in Toronto. Just getting all the feathers just right.
The egret left his perch to do some foraging for food
Great Blue Heron
Had a hard time to get this picture as the bush was so dense I could only get my lens through the branches and I was squeezed in myself. This heron was sitting with some young ducks south of where I took the pictures of the white egret.

Ladybugs (Harmonia Axyridis)
I took this picture of these ladybugs on a plant that is on my front lawn. I did not know there is over 150 different types of ladybugs and it took a while for me to identify these two. They are a variation of the same type originating in Asia but brought to the US to help control pests such as the white fuzzy aphid on the leaf just below them. I don't know where the aphid is coming from as I don't have any apple or beech trees around my house that this type congregates on.
