I’m a day late and a dollar short with this bird – this is probably the most photographed bird on Facebook right now. Still, it is a beautiful bird to see and the pond in Algonquin park where the bird is located, is rather small, allowing for very good looks at this bird. Huge thanks to Bruce Nott for locating the bird and having someone post about it, even though he was still out in the field.

The bird spent most of the time I was there this morning tucked in...

  1. Your shots are fabulous, as were Karen’s! I think I have to go back when the sun isn’t so bright and washing everything out. I just couldn’t get a shot that wasn’t overexposed. Nice series Matt!

  2. Thanks John and Karen. I was there around 9 am, the light wasn’t amazing, but it wasn’t harsh like it could be. Matt
