This past week I had the good fortune of making a whirlwind trip to the Yukon. I had a work meeting in Whitehorse for 2 days and tacked an additional 2 days onto the trip to tour around the Whitehorse area with a friend, taking photos. I was lucky to be there during the annual Celebration of Swans, a festival staged around the arrival of hundreds of Trumpeter and Tundra swans, which stop over on their journey back up north to their breeding territory.
Although the weather wasn’t great, keeping swan numbers low, it was still a fabulous experience to see and photograph these majestic birds in the wild.
