"ARCTIC BLAST"

Tundra Swans - 7 Photos

 

Because of Alberta's diverse weather & seasons, its wildlife can also be varied particularly with migrations. Where else can you encounter White-Faced Ibis in the summer months and swans from the Arctic in December.

 

So what do you do on those days that are -31 degrees C with the wind chill and snow showers - well you hunker down with those newly arrived Tundra Swans and hope for some great photo opportunities. 

 

And although these two swans were sitting on an icy shoal, they were much more prepared (and more practiced) for the state of an Arctic blast than one lonely photographer.

I'm sorry for both the photographer and swans...
I can see how they huddle together and try to stay warm. No wing stretches, no swimming.
Great photos, worthy surviving this cold weather!
