Two of my favourite artists were on stage tonight: Joel Plaskett and Danny Michel (above). More from Shelter Valley Folk Festival on flickr.

Green and Yellow Caterpillar

This smooth green caterpillar with yellow and black stripes and small eye shapes is likely Cucullia asteroides (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae: Cucullinae).

This mayfly landed first on a blue dress but it stands out better against white. The following day, it cast its skin.

I finished making these cedar instrument tags for Shelter Valley Folk Festival and I stopped at Moore Orchard for some fresh apples.

These young people cut through the alley by the Dragon City Mall.
I took other neat photos this afternoon as well, of men on Beverley, construction on construction, high scaffolding, a construction walkway, a nook parking lot, a brown Rolls Royce, men on a roof, and a van in front of homes with round roof dormers.

This afternoon we went to the newly opened Alex Colville exhibit at the Art Gallery of Ontario. I was not expecting photos to be allowed as most of the other paid exhibitions have not allowed photos. There were great opportunities for Colville inspired photographs as he often pictured his subjects in untypical poses. The exhibit was a great opportunity to see widely known paintings as well as lesser known paintings (there are some on loan from private collectors). Go see it if you can!

We visited Country Heritage Park near Milton today and even though it was cool and cloudy, we enjoyed walking around the historical buildings. There are some very interesting buildings (town hall, school, church, eight-sided barn), details (eavestroughs and fence), machines, and displays (wax apples). It’s a great place to learn about and enjoy Ontario’s agricultural history.
