    After a long drought I was finally able to enjoy the sun and get out and take some pics. I went to a place called HumberBay Park in Toronto
    I didn't see anything out of the ordinary but got a few pics.

    Stunning!!! Those are gorgeous...I love the water droplets you can see on the swan's chest/belly in that fifth shot.

    Thanx everyone, it was just nice to get out and take some pics.

    Ray where is Sam Smith Park?

    Have you ever been to Beamer Conservation? I hear it's a hotspot for raptors and many other bird species.

    Nice series. Sam Smith is right on the Lakeshore and Kipling area.

    I have been to Beamer, you need to remember the raptor counters are not photogs. Many of the raptors are well above 1 to 2 thousand feet. Not great for pics.
