Yes, I mean to yell. If you wish to join me, feel free.
The first two images are actually from yesterday. The one directly below was a thrill. We stopped at the lake across from C's school and saw a loon. Of course, I didn't get a great close-up but...
These really need to be seen full-size, oh well. A killdeer - high on my list of favorite birds, simply because I like their cry.
The sun is shining, why not smile!!
The light is glorious, don't you agree?
Warm enough for tulips (biting hard on tongue).
An issue on today's walk - K will not wear mittens. Consequently, when her hands reach maximum cold tolerance, we get to listen to her squall; here she goes getting her hands wet again.
An unusual and (therefore, in my opinion) cool wasp gall.
My camera really isn't the right sort for birds, but I can't help trying. Today was fabulous - robins by the scores, cardinals calling back and forth across the ravine, the throaty rasps of the jays, the goldfinch, my first two bluebirds of the season, a great blue heron soaring over, and gulls flying brilliantly white and high in the clear blue sky.
I believe this bird is a phoebe but as you can tell he isn't the entire point of the photo.
C at a lovely little pond below someone's house but on the trail 'right of way.'
Just as we were exiting the trail, I looked up. He held still hoping I wouldn't see him.
