Cootes Paradise (Second Visit)

April 17 2015 - Walk through a trail in Cootes Paradise, Hamilton, Ontario.   

Snakes, butterflies, turtles - the forest is coming alive with new and awakening life! 

I couldn't help but get excited by every Garter Snake and Mourning Cloak I saw, and every new bird call I heard.   After the seventh Garter Snake I stopped trying to get a picture.    

So spring is here!  I had a pretty uneventful winter, but I with the new weather and my improved health I am looking forward to experiencing all the changes that come with the changing seasons.
