On the Solar Array at the Wilderness Center, Wilmot Ohio. Tanning maybe? Actually, the array also provides some prime nesting spots. My Friday Friends.
These geese were enjoying our spring like mid-January day. Gracing the sky with formation, teamwork, and honky tonk in flight. More graceful pictures can be found at the
The last sunrise of 2016. Unremarkable, as most days are. But we designate an end which simply becomes a new beginning. From my Year’s day hike, I post a photo of an immature Red Headed Woodpecker. Chasing after birds with a camera is a new challenge and this bird is a young one. It seems to be an appropriate choice to start the new year.
My Friday Friend
Last Friday temperatures were setting records in the low 70’s. The next morning snow arrived, so I made one last warm weather hike before overdue cold temps settled in for the season. This little chippy thought the same thing and made good use of its last day out. I’m sure it’s not seen daylight since.
Two things are unusual here. I didn’t remember ever seeing a killdeer in the fall, nor do i ever remember seeing one by the water. They are the “Land Plover”. It may be more habits, mine and theirs. Anyway, they were quite entertaining.
Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge this week is Through the Window .
I took this picture of my grandson doing some bird watching a couple of years ago.
The wild garden edges transitions into to its summer display. Mostly, my hikes have me taking photos in holes of the forest canopy, woodland edges and prairie islands. Each season established its own beauty and its own display of light. I’ve found that dappled sunshine and deep shadows will make photos of interest. Enjoy springs end and summers beginning.
