Wide Open Spaces

This is my contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge: In the big wide open spaces prompt.

I was considering a couple of approaches to the prompt before realising that there was one obvious choice, Saskatchewan, Canada.

Female Red-winged Blackbird

My Saturday Bird this week is a female Red-winged Blackbird (Agelaius phoeniceus) and is a follow up to my Saturday Bird two weeks ago which was a male Red-winged Blackbird.

I waited two weeks to post the female because the males normally arrive some time before the females. This allows the males to set up territories before the females arrive.

This female was photographed in central Saskatchewan in the spring.

Forms of Water

This is my contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge: Solid, liquid and gas prompt.

After two weeks of snow and below normal temperatures there was an obvious choice for this prompt, water in its various forms.

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Treasure Hunt
Solid and gas. Ice on a section of frozen marsh at Little Quill Lake, Saskatchewan, Canada in winter. Clouds overhead are part water vapour although at -40° there can be very little water vapour at ground level.
Cee's Fun Foto Challenge: Winter
Solid and gas. Solid in the form of snow and ice on Lake Huron. Gas in the form of the water vapour in the clouds over Chantry Island and its lighthouse, Southampton, Ontario at sunset.
One Word Sunday: Whatchamacallit
Liquid and gas. The water of Colpoy’s Bay on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario as the liquid and clouds over the bay as gas in the form of water vapour.
Six Word Saturday: Fishing in the Mist at Sunrise
Liquid and gas. Mist containing water vapour rising up off the water of Colpoy’s Bay on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario at sunrise.

Throwback Thursday

A V at Sunset

Throwback Thursday travels back to Saskatchewan in the late 1990s.

A large, loose V of Sandhill Cranes flying to roost at sunset during the autumn migration.

With no internet connection at home I’m slowly working on editing the thousands of slides I copied last winter. I recently finished all the copies with Sandhill Crane included in the keywords.
