Some photos of the flora, fauna and fungi of Georgian Bay, Ontario, Canada.
More information about this richly diverse and beautiful area can be found at https://www.gbbr.ca.
My favourite of these is Eriophorum virginicum, the tawny cottongrass, which in late summer to autumn dots the landscape with its fluffy seedheads.
Georgian Bay is part of the Canadian Shield, a vast swathe of exposed granite bedrock. Plants, mosses, trees appear to magically emerge directly from the smooth lichen-bedecked rock.
Mosses and their friends are not the only beauty. There are many flowering plants to be found. I hope to return when the irises are in bloom.
Many kinds of berries abound, including wild blueberries and raspberries. Though delicious, we are not alone in enjoying them, as Georgian Bay is also home to black bears.
