Photo Scavenger Hunt – Fall 2017


On Saturday, September 30, 2017, I attended a photo scavenger hunt in the Ottawa downtown area. There was no prize for your efforts and I used the time just to explore parts of the Ottawa area around the National Gallery of Canada. These are some of the photos that I took during my 3 or 4 hours of exploration.

Mud Lake – National Capital Region


This morning I met up at 7:00 am with some of the members of the Camera Club of Ottawa so that we could explore the Mud Lake area in the morning light and when there are fewer people around. The wild life was a wee bit scarce and apart from the constant territorial disagreements between the Canadian geese, there wasn’t a lot of action. I did manage to get a few photos that I thought were worth keeping.

After a while, I decided to break away from the group and head out on my own to explore the swampy areas of Mud Lake. I’m glad I did – although not a great photo, I managed to capture three woodland ducks (one female and two males) having a ménage à trois in the bushes.

Ménage à Trois

I resisted telling them to get a room. Not often you have a chance to see the wildlife in action.
