Sammich Night at the Prescott

The Ottawa Flickr photography group is quite active and tries to get together once a month for a “pub’ night to meet and greet and swap stories.

Graeme and I try to get out to as many of the pub nights as we can. They are usually fun times and someone always has something to show everyone by way of the newest technology or something interesting from the film days. This particular evening was dubbed the March Sammich night. I didn’t get a photo of Myke’s sammich so a shot of a pizza will have to suffice.

Mud Lake, Nepean, Ontario – Flickr Ottawa Outing

Mud Lake is a small body of water near the shore of the Ottawa River.  It is an ideal spot to view warbler migrations in Spring and, throughout the rest of the year, a great spot to find Wood Ducks, Mallards, Great Blue Herons and the occasional Night Heron and Green Heron.  What one might or might not see on any given day is highly variable.

The waters of the Ottawa River were surprisingly high this day compared to other times that I had visited the area and so, as others focused their cameras on birds in the trees, all I could say was, “Wow! Look how high the river still is!”
