I'd be interested as well. The Calgary zoo could be interesting for a day trip.

It sure is Bryan, I like to go there to practise things, see what works best. In the spring the butterfly cage will likely have lots of residents. When I went there last month there were very few butterflies there but some of the animals who like winter were way more active than you see in summer.

I'm game for the zoo! (the wife and munchkin are too)
Come spring time, Bowness park can be photogenic. There is always ducks, baby ducks, geese etc. Plus its on the Bow river for FLYWING

I think a spring BBQ is in order!!

The weir on the bow river is always a great place for birds in the spring.

I like the idea of the zoo as well. Plus I haven't been there since they did a ton of work to the place. I'm writing exams at the end of March, but anytime after I'm good to go!

Hello,
My name is Elfie and I live about 2 hours southeast of Calgary, in the Little Bow area. We are about 1 hour northwest of Lethbridge.
I started taking pictures about 30 years ago, mostly family pictures. About 4 years ago I got my first little Canon S500, started taking Photography classes at SAIT.
Now, in retirement, I am having a lot of fun taking pictures of wildlife.

I would be interested in joining you guys for some shooting in the Lethbridge area.

Elfie

I'm thinking someone has to set a date, time and place then let everyone know. If people could make it that would be great, if they can't then maybe next time. I am so incredibly busy with my business that I would only be able to commit nearer the chosen time but would sure make the effort to make it work.

Alright, well to sum it up:

Me = April to when the snow falls, except May 10-14th, I'm busy.
BearLeeAlive = April until mid May
Tangledlines = April
Geoff_Shawcross = May, June, July.

So I think right now, late April or May sounds the safest. So if it's May, I'd say the weekends of either:

May 6-8
May 18-20
May 25-27

How do those sound?

From what I've read, the zoo would be a popular choice. So that's one day. Other places in the city could include along Memorial Drive (when the sun is starting to set, it's pretty nice) and Fish Creek Park can be a nice walk.

Banff would be sweet, bit of a drive, but it would be sweet.

So there, not really a decision, but at least it's a start in narrowing down a solid date.

May 18-21 is the long weekend so that one would be out.

The zoo is great, I go there all the time.

I've never gone shooting in Fish Creek Park but would welcome the chance.

Banff is nice, here is a shot from early morning yesterday as the sun broke through the clouds near Banff, just to tease you all a bit;)

Oh right, good call. Alright, weather wise the later the better (usually) so how about:

May 25-27?

Sounds good to me.....May 25-27 that is. I'll still have to check that I can get those days off work, but I don't think that will be to much of a problem. Once I know, I'll post here. The more the merrier. :)

If it ends up that everyone is okay with these dates, then all we will need to do is finalize where to go for those days. I for one like the idea of the Calgary zoo as one of the places to go. I've been there a few times and find that there are many photo oportunities.
