Phil Tughan was inspired by Javier’s recommendation to shoot at Kanata’s Beaver Pond and reports:
To add to the info on the Beaver Pond, go to the pond by going to the end of Walden Drive at the east end of the pond. The parking lot is completely closed, but you can easily park on the road. The best photography is along the paved walkway along the south side and at the east end of the pond. The western half is marsh and not accessible.
I have attached some Blue Heron photos that I took early in the morning after Javier’s great presentation. These were taken at the east end of the pond at the water’s edge.
