Queen Anne's Lace

Queen Anne's Lace, Daucus carota, carotte sauvage

I like how there's one deep purple-black flower at the centre of Queen Anne's Lace. Spencerville Mill

Red Tailed Hawk

Not interested in squirrel

Held its foot like this - didn't see any injury
Red-tailed hawk (Buteo jamaicensis), Buse à queue rousse, June 23, 2018, Gray's Creek Marina Centre, Cornwall, Ontario - it let me approach quite close, not bothered - thought it might be stunned or something, but it flew off normally towards some blackbirds.
For scale - card marked 3 inches / 7 centimetres

Moon clouds

At Sidewalk Astronomy in Cornwall, hosted by Speaking of Space. They had a adapter to put a phone camera on the eyepiece of a telescope. Also saw Jupiter and four of its moons.
