When capturing images of wildlife I aim to do my best at creating separate between my subject and the background. I also look for backgrounds that are clean and contain no distracting elements. With that said when I spotted this Willow Ptarmigan in a patch of thick alders shortly after sunset the contrast between the white subject and dark background drew me in....I guess it just goes to show that rules are meant to be broken.

Heavy steam fog blanketed the lake as the morning sun bathed it in warm lit. Laying on my belly at the edge of the lake two Common Mergansers flew in. Even though these sea ducks are common to the island they are general very skittish so I was stocked when this individual came close enough to frame up this composition.

Spending 3 days off and on photographing groups of Willow Ptarmigan my mind was racing the whole time. I was imagining all the various images I hoped I could capture; from static poses, action shots to behavioral images. One image in particular that I wanted was one of the Ptarmigan feeding on the alder buds and it wasnt until my final day that I was able to capture what I had envisioned. The Ptarmigans often feed in the thicker alders making it difficult to capture a pleasing image. But on this occasion I waited patiently for this individual to step out into the open and feed on these smaller twigs. Once he did I held down on the shutter release and prayed I would capture the exact moment it grabbed the bud and I was so pleased to see this in the back of my LCD screen.

A Willow Ptarmigan stands on top of a snow drift as the high winds blew the loose snow across the open barrens and the last rays of snow bathe the landscape. This past weekend I was fortunate enough to see large numbers of this species feeding on the barrens of Terrenceville, NL and being that it was my first time photographing them I felt very lucky to have had the opportunity.

Some outings you will just never forget..those are the times when all the elements line up and provide you with a purely magical moment to witness. On this morning the Fall foliage was at its peak color and there was little to no breeze creating the perfect waterfowl photography day. Here an American Wigeon paused in the swallow waters to preen just as the sun lit up the lake.
