Family Day Outing with Terry Sprague et al

On Monday Feb. 18th, a group nearly 40 strong gathered at the Hillier Town Hall for the start of a nature walk along a portion of the Millenium Trail that spans Lake Consecon.  The group was led by Terry Sprague, Pamela Stagg and local photographer Rick Matthews.  It was a glorious crisp sunny winter day with very little wind.  It didn't feel like the -12C that my thermometre indicated.  The lake was frozen solid with the exception of a small patch near the trail bridge.  This provided sanctuary for a glorious flock of swans allowing those of us with cameras to get some great close-ups of these majestic creatures.  Here's a sampling of swan portraits taken by some of the participants.
