Went for a trip to Earlton the farming area on the little clay belt. Earlton is about 70km east of Gowganda as the crow flies. Miles of crops can be seen grains, corn and canola are the most important. Some of the crops are just now being harvested.
Click of pic for panorama.

Went out to Miller Lake around 10:30pm last night to watch the northern lights across the lake. They were on and off from 11 to 1:30am and I finally left after not seeing anything more at 3:00am. The brightness of the moon didn't help seeing the Aurora.
A view of me taking the pictures, it is a lot darker than what this picture looks.

Last night clear skies to see the International Space Station fly over our area. If you are interested in looking for yourself go to this link to find when it will fly over your area. It will tell you the time and the area to watch in the sky. Later in the evening I even caught a meteor which I did not see until I looked the pictures.

Drosera, commonly known as the Sundews, comprise one of the largest genera of carnivorous plants, with at least 194 species. Found mostly in boggy areas these plants lure, capture, and digest insects using stalked sticky glands covering their leaf surfaces. The insects are used to supplement the poor mineral nutrition of the soil in which they grow. Here is a link to a Youtube clip showing a Sundew eating a bug.
