This is the best time of year for my favorite area of the Guelph Arboretum: the Wild Goose Woods boardwalk. During the late spring the boardwalk trail is still flooded with water, but the surrounding Freeman's maples have regrown their leaves, creating a green cast on the water's reflection.
This particular day the boardwalk seemed almost ethereal. It had been raining on and off for the past few days, and the birds were spirited during the break from the rain. The rain clouds in the area kept the forest shadowed, but the light, dry wood of the boardwalk created a wonderful contrast in photographs.
I even went so far as to take a video so I could capture the audio of all the excited birds hidden in the canopy of the old-growth forest.
