This video was shot over a period of two days, on some unusually cold mornings in the spring of 2016. Some of the images were shot from the “bow” of a canoe. At times the air was so cold it was difficult to feel our fingers. It was truly an amazing experience to observe as the scenery and wildlife woke up, all at the same time.
