Wetland Area/ Watery Wednesday

Nonquon Provincial Wildlife Area, Port Perry, Ontario

This wildlife area is a thousand hectares of wetland with 100 acres set aside for educational purposes, the rest for camping, birdwatching, fishing, hiking and other outdoor activities.

I am linking to Watery Wednesday where you can find many more watery photos.

Cool spot. Interesting little old shen hunkered down in the wetland.

Regarding Kylee's ride. I believe her time was 22.624---so she didn't win but she had a clean ride. That wide first turn took her out of the money. She was happy with her run otherwise. MB

I love the layers of color. I wonder what it looks like in the summer. Wonderful shot.

so much water! Our wetlands don't look like that :)

Great shot - nice to see what this area looks like. This is the spot where they are having the trouble with people doing target practice and peppering the neighbouring homes with bullets. Don't think that I would venture near it.

This looks like a magnet for water and shore birds.

Beautiful! It looks a bit like a part of my country!
Thanks for your comment! Batavia is also the name of the capital of Java when it was still a colony of the Netherlands. Indonesia was then called Dutch East Indies. Batavia is now Jakarta .
