Camera Critter Saturday-The Girls

Posted by Picasa

My pups were all tired out after our morning walk.  The weather here will just not warm up, cold, cloudy and dreary.............. it is getting old.

Camera Critter Saturday Tree Swallows

Recently at a local park we saw the biggest flock of swallows I have ever seen!  It was really fun to watch them.

Spring Blooms

Posted by Picasa

Mother Nature is still playing tricks on us.   We had over an inch of snow and slush yesterday.  It is gone today but it is still very cool for this time of year.  I have always heard that there will be more snow as long as the Juncos are still around and they have been around every day,  so I have been wondering if they were correct and they were.   I hope tomorrow when I go for my walk they are gone and I have not seen any at my feeders today so maybe this is our last snow, hopefully, anyway.  Once again the Juncos were correct, I have been watching this for years and they have not missed once.

Things are finally starting to pop out of the ground and the hyacinths are in bloom and I am even seeing some small pollinator bees.

The crocus are in full bloom, the hyacinths will be close behind.  It is 86 degrees here today.

Spring flowers

I am not sure what this little blue flower is, it is really tiny and spreads in the lawn and blooms really early and the disappears.   About 33 years ago I dug some peonies from my grandmother's old house and the bulbs were dormant in the soil.    They are such a pretty blue.

I was having some fun with PSE.

White Tailed Deer

There were 5 deer in this group, you can see the white tail up as a warning, I didn't think I looked that scary :).

I still cannot upload photos directly from Picasa as I always have done, wish google would get their act together.  I have to browse and find the photo, which is not really that big of a deal but when you have as many photos as I do, it takes more time.

Camera Critter Saturday

Spring migration is upon us,  while taking the 1st photo I did not notice the two juvenile bald eagles in the tree watching the ducks, I cropped them out in the second photo.  It is always fun to get a "bonus" when taking pictures!

I wanted to include a link to an eagle web cam that is about 90 miles from my house, the eggs should be hatching any time.   It is fascinating!

Ducks and Geese

The ducks are starting to migrate through our area, the top photo is a Coot, or Mud Hen or Hell-Diver.  I'm sure everyone knows what the second photo is and I wish they were just migrating through but they stay here the year round.

I think Google must be having a bad hair day still, 1st they stole my blog and now I can't upload photos from within Picasa.  Good Grief.
