Melting ice and snow on a Lake Simcoe dock
Lately it has been so mild here in central Ontario that instead of snow we have been getting rain. Saturday was so warm that a temperature record was broken.

There's ice under the puddle but I doubt it's very thick.
Tundra swans way out on the lake
I turned around, zoomed out my point-and-shoot's lens and captured some tundra swans standing in water over ice. Aren't they funny?
The swans are spending the winter in balmy Ontario, their cold weather destination. (And YOU thought every Canadian headed for Florida or Arizona this time of year!)
I bet you can guess by their name that they are visiting from the Arctic where they breed.
The swan on the right is a juvenile so not totally white yet.
