Last year, spring time was a time of unusual dryness. This year, it is totally the opposite. An unusual volume of water has left parking lots flooded, marshes overflowing, and trees appearing to be growing out of Lake Ontario.
The change in our local landscape is very evident, due to the volume of water that we received recently.
Some days you can visit the marsh and all be quiet, while other visits can be very timely.
It was a great opportunity to see this Green Heron in such a close way.
Early in the morning seems to be a good time, when they are searching for food, and all around is peace and quiet.
Swans feeling secure as they fly low over the marsh. They have the denseness of the marsh shrubs to one side of them, and the compactness from the water lilies below them.
While it’s the end of March, still no signs of spring here. This photo is very heavy on the color brown, not only from the deer, but also from the closeness of the meadow.
This photo is filled with denseness all around from the color of the deer, to the thickness of the meadow, to the heavy piece of tree stump in the bottom right corner.
