Earlier this year I visited High Park in Toronto. Today we visited it again to see how it looks in the fall. I was able to capture a bit of the fall color.
The earlier High Park post started with a picture of the tree chair that I am sitting in here. I thought it would be nice to start this post in a similar way. You can see by the way I am dressed that it was a cold day. Temperatures were about 2-3 degrees when we arrived at the park. We even saw a few snow flurries while at the park.
I like this picture that I took of a mallard swimming in Grenadier Pond. I really like the reflections in this picture. The mallard is reflected as well as the colorful trees along the bank of the pond.
There is a small zoo at High Park and I enjoyed taking pictures of the animals. Definitely not as big as the Toronto Zoo, but a nice place to see a few animals.
Here is a nice reindeer. I am sure that it is getting rested up for the big job it has ahead of it in December.
I was able to get some close-ups of one of the emus at the zoo. I really like their big eyes and menacing beaks. Here you can see that the emu had been eating grass. The little blade of grass sticking out the corner of the beak just adds a nice little touch to the picture.
Luckily we didn’t see any Angry Birds at the park today.
