    Spring's sweet song

    Photographer Krista Routledge says of this early morning shot: "I had been out for sunrise photos and ended up out in the country, north of Herbert, Sask. where I often drive. Here I watch for interesting fence posts and this time was happy to see a lovely meadowlark singing for me. A series of photos helped me capture this one with its mouth wide open in full song!"

    Let's dance!

    Photographer Krista Routledge says of this shot taken in southwest Saskatchewan: "Around dawn these birds gathered, putting on an amazing show, making it hard for me to chose the direction I should be shooting. With nearly two hours of watching them perform their dance of dominance, I felt so fortunate and happy with the opportunity I had been afforded."
