My wife and I hit the road for a day of photography at our favourite spots around Southern Ontario

First stop was YYZ, Toronto International Airport. I have been trying to capture some images of the Etihad A-340 but I’m now 0 for 3

It was then off to the duck pond to visit some friends. First to come over was Mr. Mallard.

We were then off to a tree in the middle of nowhere to fine some Pine Grosbeaks I had heard about yesterday. Luckily we managed to find them. They usually do not venture this far south so it was a nice find.

We then hit the back roads heading for home

Man oh man, what a great bunch of shots. I can barely narrow it down to a few faves...

-I like Mr. Mallard cuz it shows him walking so gingerly on the ice (and water is running off him like, well, water off a duck)
-Mrs. Bufflehead landing and waterskiing are fun shots...I always like to see them just as they land, with their feet outstretched
-the grosbeaks are spectacular! Wonderful colour and dof and natural surroundings
-the lone tree really appeals to me...so solitary and bleak, but with that pretty sky
-love the sharpness of the headstone shot
-love all the horse and llama shots, showing their playful/inquisitive side
-and that last shot is simply stunning

You had a very productive day!
