A beautiful day for a walk in the park.  - Friday August 25, 2017.
Swan Lake Village area, Markham, Ontario.

August has been a wonderful time to walk in the park. For the first time I've ever seen, a beautiful white Great Egret has decided to stay on the lake. Also the night herons have returned to the lake, and a pair of Kingfishers took up residency earlier this year.

The Monarch Butterfly population declined to about 30% of normal a few years ago but the population is growing again and we have seen more of these beautiful insects this summer.
