MacGregor Point Provincial Park

MacGregor Point Provincial Park

The night had arrived with a meteor like sunset through a thin slit in the clouds. It didn’t rain overnight though and there were no threatened storms or high winds so sleeping in the tent was rather pleasant and I awoke to the sound of robins and other creatures nearby my tent.

Robin (Turdus migratorius)

Yellow-Shafted Flicker, Northern Flicker (Colaptes auratus)

In the fresh air of the morning, I was able to wander around the more or less deserted campground without disturbing anyone as I got in close to the various flowers and insects.  Prior to the May long weekend, it is great to be camping in the provincial parks.  No line-ups for anything.

Dwarf Lake Iris (Iris lacustris) is designated as a Threatened species throughout its range.

Fringed Gaywings (Polygala paucifolia)

Sand cherry blossoms (Prunus pumila)

Star Flower (Trientalis borealis)

Marsh Marigold (Caltha palustris)

Violaceae sp.

Forget-me-nots (myosotis sp.)

At least one person stopped to wonder why I was on my hands and knees photographing the gravel but hopefully when they saw that the camera was pointing at a small butterfly or a dragonfly they worried a little less about my sanity.

Spring Azure (Celastrina ladon)


Great Egret, Great White Egret (Ardea alba)

Red-breasted Nuthatch (Sitta canadensis)

Blue Jay (Cyanocitta cristata)


Yellow Lady Slipper, Yellow Moccasin Flower (Cypripedium pubescens)

Canada Goose and goslings
