After an almost snow-free winter where the only wildlife seemed to be common house sparrows, also called English Sparrows, it's wonderful to see all the birds and animals return.
I spend time every day taking photos of anything that catches my eye and so when Nelson Draper wanted a good camera to use on his daily travels, I gave him my Nikon P500 to see if he liked it. I had upgraded to a Nikon P520 and really like the hybrid camera with it's long zoom, but without the need to carry around extra lenses.
And now we're getting into a nightly ritual of comparing the photos we've taken throughout the day.
Here's the best of our shots for April 13th:

My best shot was actually a video of a Long-tailed weasel who had come poking around our yard. Here's the screenshot of it followed by the actual video:

The video is silent because I was shooting through the picture-window of my living room. Yes... it came right into our yard.
I'll be posting more photos and video as soon as I can. Please enjoy this brief glimpse into Saskatchewan wildlife.
