Pink is not at all the colour I would expect to find on a crisp October day in Ontario. But there it was, putting on a show that could rival any springtime apple blossom, and just as spectacular as the surrounding autumn foliage. Taken at the Experimental Farm Arboretum this afternoon:
Also, if you happen to be in the area (and interested!) there are some unusual vistors at Dows’ Lake right now. Today we spotted some ducks I had never seen before~ Hooded Mergansers and Common Mergansers. They are spectacular ducks and I would have loved to see them much closer, but unfortunately, they were too far away for any decent photographs. I took some anyway so that I could at least identify them later. If you’re into that sort of thing, grab your binoculars and head out to see if you can spot them!
