Painting Robin birds!
We traveled a fair amount in 2018. The second trip we took last year was to drive from Yellowknife, to the Yukon for Arctic Winter Games meetings (my husbands), then all the way to Tuktoyaktuk and back to Yellowknife.
We stopped the second night in northern BC at the Liard Hot Springs. Ian is a hot spring kind of guy… me not so much. My oldest had lent me his 300mm camera lens to use until he came to visit in July and I just walked around looking for birds.
I noticed this robin with a beak full of grubs, of course I took some photos. Then it flew to its nest. So cool. Because the area is a park there were boardwalks and stairs to protect the flora and fauna. I just walked up the stairs and was eye level to the nest! I spent a long time photographing the parents coming and going.
Sadly, by the time we came through two weeks later the chicks had already fledged.
Thanks for stopping by. I will be back next Friday! See you then.
Yellowknife watercolour and acrylic artist Shawna Lampi-Legaree’s latest venture can best be summarized as capturing moments of beauty from the world around her.
