Swallows Nesting at the R.C. Harris Water Filtration Plant

While visiting the interiors of the buildings comprising the R.C. Harris Water Filtration Plant, there was also a show happening outside of the buildings, as Swallows were building their nests in small nooks near the tops of these buildings. Here are some of the better shots:

Victoria Day Fireworks at Woodbine Beach 2012

The Royals came to visit and observe the annual fireworks display commemorating the current Queen’s Great-Grandmother Victoria, which added to the usual crowds. It is also likely why things started 15 minutes earlier than usual, which meant I wasn’t fully set up when things started. Still, I managed to get a few decent shots in before it ended.

Snowy Egret in Flight

Unfortunately I accidentally spooked this bird when he was wading in a marshy pool at Woodbine Park, but he gave me a great view when he flew by to head to the beaches further south of Woodbine Park.
