I went to the La Petite Gemme Prairie (near our house) to take wildflower photos and also got some shots of this scissor-tailed flycatcher. For some reason, I don’t see hardly any on our farm, so I enjoyed this opportunity to get some shots.

I looked out the kitchen window and saw this red-tailed hawk sitting on the clothes-line pole which happens to be very close to the bird feeders in our front yard!
He’s checking out the tasty morsels here!
Then he senses me taking his photo and decides maybe it’s not worth the trouble for that easy meal. At least I hope he does!
I started taking photos before the sun was up of the birds lining up at the feeders (through the living room window!) and then went outside later to take more snow photos.
I’m playing with time lapse photography and so tinkered with photos of the birds at our feeder during the light rain this afternoon.
We went fishing near Fairford, MB. Didn’t catch any fish, but saw some beautiful pelicans! More photos to come!
The fish liked the snacks the kids were tossing out just as much as the geese did!
These leaves (Japanese Maple?) looked glorious in their late fall colors. I focused on the perfect leaf in left with the light hitting it just right.
We watched this eagle fly and dive outside our hotel room window before I finally remembered to pick up my camera! This was the best I could get after missing some possibly good shots!
