It's hard to believe that this autumnal scene was taken nearly three weeks into spring of 2017.
The Long and Winding Trail
Just as we rounded a curve in the trail, this scene of the winding trail was inviting us to explore more of the woods.
Stillness by the Pond
On a sunny, Sunday afternoon, this quiet spot beside the pond beckoned.
When we arrived to see the Morrow Osprey, it was raining and we saw only one osprey, sitting high in a tree on the other side of the lake. Almost immediately, it swooped low and then back up to the nest. Immediately behind it, another osprey arrived with two fish.
At that point, my sister was urgently reminding me to get my camera. The second osprey left one fish and took the other.
The first osprey proceeded to tear up the fish and then settled down on the nest to keep the eggs warm and dry.
Every once in a while, I think one of my photographs deserves to be transported to a dream world.
Do I Know You From Somewhere?
This little guy certainly appeared to be trying to figure something out. Perhaps he saw his reflection in my camera lens.
A few flurries made a nice background for this female cardinal, eating her lunch on an oak limb.
Oak Hill Swan
Oak Hill Cemetery is a beautiful cemetery and made even more beautiful by the swans in the lake.
The First Snow
On the way home from work, I could hardly wait to get home, so I could see more of the beauty outlining the trees.
What's more beautiful than a bright red male cardinal and the first decent snow of the season?
