I'm happy my camera is finally back (after 2 months) and fixed yet sad that my experience at Vistek has lost me as a future client. When I find a business I like, I go all the way with it, I have been a customer since 2002, but piss me off, treat me like a brainless boob and well, you've just lost my business, which by the way has lost them more than one client as another family member recently purchased a lot of camera equipment; they shopped elsewhere. Presently I am in the market for a good sturdy tripod, hello Don's Photo.
O.K. on with migration!
Beautiful Pin-tail male, the female is on the shore to the left.
Horned Grebes. Brilliant red eyes glow. I find it interesting that many birds have bright red eyes.
On another pond a bit further north this Pied-billed Grebe surfaced close to the road. The pond was cut in two by a busy farm road that saw a lot of equipment hauling to and from the fields yet it was abundant with birds. Tiny and precious this little Grebe is our smallest and although not brightly colored as the other Grebes its subtle charm is captivating.
Eared Grebes in evenings golden sunlight.
Moose on the loose.
My first spotting of a horned lark ever, even though people state they are common here.
After leaving Donalda we visited a dear friend out in Heisler. This female Merlin was about. She is quite small, smaller than the Merlin we see in our neighbourhood. I thought it was a Kestral when it first flew by due its tiny size.
Well my gesso should be dry so its time to go coat a few more canvas for some special paintings I have planned for the exhibition in Red Deer.
Big Hugs and enjoy.
