Slept beside the creek this weekend, can’t believe how much Freya enjoys crawling in the hammock for the night. Beauty spot!

So much fun exploring this place. I'm going to be picking a date in August to head here again and probably head even further north with some buddies.
Big week ahead first though, going out a couple of nights with @tourismwinnipeg and @travelmanitoba to the @wpg_goldeyes game and Lower Fort Garry for photo shoots with some new photographers. Super excited for that.

@jr_jurassic and I arrived at Shaw park with just about 5 minutes of sunlight left, glad we got to take full advantage of it... Lots more on the way!
Edit by me
Like many evenings that came before it, we went looking for Short-eared Owls last night at dusk to no avail.
That’s the way birding is sometimes. You leave the house with a target species in mind. You visit habitat that you believe will frequented by the target species or locations where there have been reported sightings.
Sometimes you luck out and sometimes you don’t.
More often than not, there are always consolation prizes!
Like the Northern Harriers, the Bobolinks and the Great Horned Owls we observed from dusk to dark!
The biggest obstacle of course with diminishing light is maxing out the capabilities of your camera/lens combo’s capabilities.
I am still pleased with the overall result of this Bobolink shot at ISO 3200 600mm f6.3 1/640sec
Not fully maxed out, but approaching the upper limits fast!
