Rowe Woods Easter Daffodils
To see millions of blooming daffodils on Easter, all I had to do was drive to Cincinnati Nature Center's Rowe Woods and go for a short hike along the Upland Trail (blue).
As the wind blew on this snowy first day of spring, this male cardinal had a few ruffled feathers.
Blue Jay but no Blue Sky
Even if the sky was hidden behind all of the snow and clouds, the blue jays brightened up the scenery.
Yellow Shafted Flicker
This female yellow-shafted flicker (northern flicker) landed on one of my oak trees several times on this snowy day.
I couldn't have asked for a better pose from this female northern cardinal.
I Thought I Told You to Stop Taking Photos of Me!
I took this photo the very second this northern flicker (yellow shafted) spotted me. In an instant, it was gone.
Mourning Dove and House Finch
Friends enjoying a moment in beautiful snow we had recently.
This female cardinal perched on a small twig, as if posing just for my camera.
Someone had just told us that they had just read that Fiona wasn't out Saturday, but we walked over to the small window and she popped up almost immediately! We think her eyes were closed because the sun was so bright. She came up by us twice, making our day!
Imagine that the flowers communicate with one another, and the coneflower is telling the yellow one that it's been nice spending time with it this summer. Soon, they will be but a memory.
