Wonderful Wetlands Just West of the City
Harlequin Corydalis/Rock Harlequin (Capnoides sempervirens) Carp Barrens Trail, Ontario, Canada.
With an intense rainfall it was any wonder that I would get any photos at all. But it subsided within a half hour & I was able to enjoy the beauty of the wetlands embedded in the rocks of the Carp Barrens. It was wonderful seeing all the Rock Harlequins bringing colour to the Barrens not seen since my trip to Algonquin Provincial Park last year. The presence of frogs along the rocky shorelines of the Barrens was also a nice surprise seeing that I haven't come across many amphibians this year. All in all it was a great adventure to the Barrens even with the heavy rainfall.
