This fellow is a first for me, others have seen them, I had never, so was quite pleased when he flew in yesterday on our walk. He did land on the other side of the lake, so pic isn't as pleasing as I would have liked, but I will take it !!
Went out for a visit with Blondie and these two colts, have enjoyed watching them grow up big and strong...
they were 'resting' when I got there, but by the time I was out of the truck and up to the fence, they were interested in me too. First time I have been this close to them, and really enjoyed it.
A bright sunny day, so of course the fence caused shadows on them, but still had fun petting them and having a little chat with them. They are so sweet.
Both were loving my attention !! :)One is a month and a half older than the other, but they are close in size and friendship !!
My daughter mentioned to me last evening if I had seen the 'Black Swans' at Cedar Meadows, of course I hadn't, so made a quick trip over there this morning to check them out. There is a ditch, with a foot of water, between the road and the fence, so these were taken from the road, you can just make out the fence in the pics but I was happy with them !
My girlfriend, another avid 'foto-taker', and I took a walk around Gilles Lake today, it was a beautiful day for a walk, lots of sunshine and a small breeze to enjoy, the ducks are starting to return for the season, seen 4 or 5 pairs so should be lots of babies this year !!
Love the reflection in this one, and his bill open...
Although we had 20 cm of snow on Friday and Saturday, which has set us back a few days, after all, everything was melted, but we knew living in the north, its never over til its over !!! :) Seems my lilac bushes didn't mind the extra moisture !!
I am wife, mother, nana, friend, head-chef, fledgling fotographer who eats and sleeps fotography !!
It is a constant in my life…love birds, bugs, animals, flowers,
themes, such as reflection, shadows, still life and macro..just about anything catches my eye…it's an obsession !!
In June/13 we moved from Northern Ontario to Goderich, On,the photo ops are endless,
