Goodbye Toronto #2
Leaving cold and grey Toronto for a while to warm up in Mexico. Although the other Great Lakes are almost totally frozen over, Lake Ontario has a lot of open water.

The open water behind the sewage treatment plant is usually a chaotic crowd of water fowl. Today's sunshine seemed to have a calming effect on the birds.

The snowplow driver did a good job of pushing back the snowbank on our cul de sac in advance of the dump of snow we're expecting tomorrow.

The grungiest bird house I've ever seen inspired me to add a grungy background texture to simulate the sky.

If you were out today, I hope you bundled up! I captured this lynx at the Muskoka Wildlife Centre in Gravenhurst on a frigid January day very much like today.
