Morning in Point Pelee

On Sunday morning, I joined Michael Lam and his wife in a couple of short hikes around Point Pelee.

I'd heard of Point Pelee from a few bird photographers who had described the park as the place to be in the spring for Warblers. I didn't know, until Michael told me that its also a great place to see Monarch Butterflies in the fall.

Sadly we were about 2 weeks too late for the Monarchs but the walk was pleasant nonetheless.

I did manage to make a couple of decent images of a Ruby-Crowned Kinglet. Kinglets are notorious for being difficult to photograph due to their small size and constant movement.

Technical Specs: Canon 1Ds3, 100-400 (bird was with 1.4x TC).
