Swan Song

Bob and I were completely absorbed in shooting (with camera's) the swans and didn't notice that Ishka was also quite taken with them. She was laying beside me and all of a sudden enters the frame of the shot I'm setting up. In stealth fashion she has wiggled on her belly from my side to the edge of the water and is trying to get to the swan. LOL Crazy dog.

The other amazing thing is I actually took my 50mm lens off and had fun using the 28-300 zoom.

Presqu'ile Provincial Park

Our most recent date was playing hooky in the middle of the week (ok we used a vacation day - everyone knows we wouldn't call in sick) for a road trip to Presqu'ile to take pic's for the day. Bob and TylerB had stopped in there on their way home from a cottage/photo weekend earlier in March but Bob thought it was worthy of a return visit - it was.

There was an Otter in the Water :) which Ishka was very interested in. That whole part about not being able to swim - was probably a good thing.

The craziest colour greens in this part of the park called "Jobes' Woods"

As you will see - there are alot of marches with boardwalks etc in the park.

We are out of Jobes' Woods and are at the "Marsh Boardwalk". It was under construction so we didn't get to go very far but it was really nice.

After our lunch/snack we headed to "Owen's Point Trail".

All hiked out we are ready to leave and take pictures from the car window if necessary on a leisurely drive home.

Right after leaving the park we drove across this bridge that was this lake/marsh where all the swan's in the post above are taken.

Waiting for a train crossing to check out this cool road and bridge but got tired of waiting - it was a long train. We decided to save this for another day when we will come out the bike.
Beautiful riding roads here.
