Photo of large silhouetted cormorant nesting colony intentionaly blurred with motion and long exposure

Taken just before sunset on a cold winter's day. Tommy Thompson Park is home to a large cormorant nesting colony. Located on the Toronto waterfront, Tommy Thompson Park is a unique urban wilderness minutes from downtown. The park is located on a man-made peninsula, known as the Leslie Street Spit, which extends five km into Lake Ontario and is over 500 hectares in size. The cormorant male chooses the nest site and then attracts a female. Accumulated fecal matter below nests can kill the nest trees. When this happens, the cormorants may move to a new area or they may simply shift to nesting on the ground. This photo can only be taken after a long prolonged cold snap as the location on the lake needs to be frozen and ice covered.
