Being new to Michigan (Troy area) I decided to check out St. Clair Metropark which has plenty of small ponds, hiking trails, brush areas, and not to mention a large (still frozen) lakefront of St. Clair Lake.

I forgot the batteries to my 60D, but luckily I had my T3i as a backup body. +70-200f4L

If anyone has any suggestions of where else I can shoot wildlife/landscape in the area, I'd greatly appreciate it!

Try Kensington Metro Park near Milford. Lots of nature trails and they have an active heron rookery.

Great, I'll look into that. Is it one of the 'official' parks in the area? Just wondering because I purchased an annual pass for these parks so I'm hoping I can get access to other ones besides St. Clair.
