Yellow-headed blackbirds in flight.
Bitter cold winds and the threat of snow did little to dampen enthusiasm on my recent May long weekend trip to Central-east Saskatchewan.
Anybody who has ever visited the beautiful province knows how spectacular the light can be. I spent my time on a migratory bird flight path photographing the American Avocet, Bohemian Waxwings and Western Meadowlarks.
Because of the extreme winds and cold (there was snow on the ground one morning) most shots were taken from the car with a Nikon300m F4 lens and a D300 Nikon. Some were shot using a 1.7 tele converter. A slight loss of auto focus and sharpness is evident.
