This is my photo gallery of pictures that I've taken that I am particularly fond of. Please enjoy!
M57 The Ring Nebula. This is a planetary nebula and is the remains of a star that exploded most of its stellar material leaving behind just a small white dwarf star. It is 2570 light years from Earth.
This is a White Breasted Nuthatch sitting on our big suet ring in our backyard. This is one of my favourite birds along with Chickadees, Juncos, and Downy Woodpeckers. It's almost like this little guy is posing for me!
