This edition of Battle of the Birds and other Wildlife shows images taken by Nelson and me on April 14, 2016.
My best photo of the day was this Milbert's Tortoiseshell Butterfly who rested on our front patio for awhile.

Nelson did such a good job with that photo, didn't he?
The Western Meadowlark is one of my favorite birds and since it has the reputation of being a storyteller, I've adopted it as the icon for my writing. You'll see the following header throughout my website, as well as displayed on the 5th of every month when I appear on the Heroes, Heroines, and History blog:
I also used a photo of a Western Meadowlark on my Facebook header last year when I announced that one of my stories was a finalist for the 2015 Word Awards. However, as you can see, my photo doesn't compare in quality to the one Nelson took above.

I hope you enjoyed these photos of Saskatchewan wildlife. More coming soon.
