Well the snow is gone and Georgian Bay is open. The warm weather has gone. We are back down below freezing overnight. Everything seems drier earlier than usual. Now we worry that there is not enough moisture for the farmers and their crops. It seems like each day new birds are back on the scene. I heard a woodpecker machinegunning a few moments ago. Maple syrup festival coming up this weekend at the Wye Marsh Wildlife Centre outside Midland. I got a call asking if i wanted to be a volunteer photographer for them this weekend and I accepted. My plan is to take two cameras: Pentax K10D and two lenses: 18-55 and 100-300 and the Sony H50 which has a 31-460mm zoom lens and two batteries for the Sony. The Pentax does not drain terribly fast so I have never seen the need for two batteries for it.
