Now that the weather is warming up a bit, I've been getting out shooting a lot more frequently!  I'm already falling behind on editing, with over 1000 photos to sort through from this past week alone.  So naturally, it's time to start writing more frequent blog posts again!

These are a few photos from a trip to Algonquin Provincial Park earlier this week.  I had great luck with two co-operative Gray Jays, which foraged within a few feet of me for over a half hour.  I was finding that the 7D/400 combo was a bit too long, so I swapped over to my 5D, which proved to be a good idea.  The 5D's AF managed to do a good job of keeping up with the fast-moving jays, and I ended up with lots of keepers!  I also photographed a number of Evening Grosbeaks at the visitor's center, and a White-winged Crossbill near the Spruce Bog Trail.
