I nearly froze to death getting these shots. The temperature, with windchill, was - 25 degrees Celsius! I'm surprised the lens worked.

Nice detail. I haven't seen any of those before. They look all fluffed upfor the cold weather.

fantastic shots Killdeer! That's a beautiful bird and you did well capturing the details. Do you get many this time of year?
I had simialr shooting conditions when I was in Nevada, Lens worked ok once it stopped fogging up but my battery went south pretty quick.

Thanks everyone for the compliments.

Kent - usually I see these guys in the mountains when it is really cold. Today I was out on the prairies looking for owls when I chanced upon a flock. They were huddled in the brush near an old barn.
