How strong was the wind? The wind-driven snow is quite blurred at 1/500th of a second, so the wind was blowing quite strongly. Gusts up to 70km/hr. Shingles were being lost.

When a flock of Bohemian Waxwings descends on a Mountain Ash, it is a chaotic scene with birds flying in and out against a messy and twiggy background.

I try to isolate an individual on an outside-hanging berry cluster so I can get as clean a background as possibe.

The lighting when I photographed these was a little flat and the birds and background looked cold. When I processed the raw files, I played around with the white balance/temperature settings and shadows and highlights to get the warmer brown tones.

I also cloned out a few out of focus twigs, berries and some bright and dark spots to even things out. To me, the Waxwings are one of nature's works of art, so I took some artistic license in the processing. I hope the images are appealing.

Edmonton, Alberta.

This is a re-worked shot first posted in January 2015. I was inspired by a recent shot and many other great wild Lynx photos posted by my long time flickr contact davezimmerman906 .

This Lynx was on the golf course next to a local park where I happened to be standing by the chainlink fence that separates the park from the course. I was photographing birds at a feeder when I saw it bounding through the deep snow on the other side. When the Lynx noticed me, it paused just enough before bounding away.

I had to shoot through an opening in the links which were too narrow to push my lens through. The original image had very blurry diagonal lines and flare all around the Lynx and in the foreground. The Lynx was clear, but my crop to eliminate that trouble was very tight

So seven years later, after having better processing software and more experience, I gave it another go around and added more of the context. I'm glad I saved the raw file.
