romance by summerfield


so, partner and i ended up at the lake west of downtown toronto. there we found several swans and i think it's mating season or get-a-mate-season for these guys. of course i had to hop my way to the water's edge because everywhere there were goose poops, or maybe swan poops. whatever, and i didn't want those to end up in my sneakers' treads.

we were watching this pair of mute swans and it seemed like they were courting. i aimed my viewfinder at a pair of fighting swans when partner noticed this two 'kiss' and their necks formed the shape of a heart. he was quite excited the way he said, "quick! quick! take that quick!" i told him to be quiet! :-D i wasn't quick enough in focusing and of course i was kicking meself for deliberately leaving my 200 lens to accommodate the bridge camera which i planned to use should it be raining hard. so this is the best i could manage.

sooc, but cropped in camera to get a closer view. name tag and border from ribbet.

thank you for your kind views and comments; they are much appreciated.
Still a beautiful shot.....

Beautiful photo! I am having trouble deciding between your challenges. I suppose I will see where the week takes me. I struggled to find you a challenge, that would be a challenge. But we will see if you like this:

Harris Shutter Effect -

I hope you like your challenge and that it is a challenge. Can't wait to see your results!
