    Indeed you have seen some beautiful sights this summer. Quite a change from just the artic. Even though in your photos here there is still colors that light up the camera. I too visited Niagara on the lake. That town has some of the most beautiful flowers. Your arrear of birds are just beautiful. Looks like you have had a wonderful summer with your tours of Canada. Summer has finally arrived with some heat at our place. I was wondering if it would ever show up. Hope you are still enjoying yours. Hugs Carrie

      Carrie, the weather here is still pretty nice,even better though it is bit cooler down. It is said there are too many bugs and mosquitoes, the worst year in past decades. yes, traveled to some of small towns in Ontario with family in this summer. it was hot but enjoyed it. it is said this would be hot summer based on Chinese Zodiac, and hope hot summer come into mountains and heat up your ranch.

    Those turkey like costumes look so funny to me! 🙂 Did you use panning technique while trying to shoot these wildlifes (for example, the merganser in Bow River)? I noticed the background has a very nice blur to it, which suggest subject in motion…

    • arcticwl says:

      you have very cute sense, the dance actually was simulating turkeys dance. i did not use panning for the merganser shot as it was not that fast, but i used for other flying birds.
