Scavenger Hunt

a. Outside

Even when it's very cold outside, a few hardy Canadians enjoy ice fishing.

 2. Backside

There was no hill n the yard, so brother and sister were taking turns pulling each other on this plastic sled.

 c. Little things

This black-capped chickadee is about the same size as the one illustrated on the coaster being used as a trail marker.

d. Cup of...

Early on some winter mornings when I am out birding (like last Thursday), cafe mocha warms me up.

e. Reflect
January - a great time to reflect on the past, look forward to the future, and enjoy the beauty of NOW.

Reflect on the past, look ahead to the future.

Your "Scavenger Hunt" photos show that you have been out and about in the winter months. After yesterday's big melt it appears to over for the time being and we will be back to photographing drab colourless outdoor scenes.

Barbara said...

Nice hunt, love your "Little things" shot!

Tamar SB said...

Mm, that warm drink looks amazing!!

TaMara Sloan said...

I love your "Reflect" shot. I live in southern USA so we rarely get snow. I love seeing beautiful snowy shots.

Adrienne said...

Love that last shot! And your little bird sitting with his matching sign - how cute is that!!

Karen said...

What a great capture for Little Things!

Pamela Gordon said...

I love Tim's Cafe Mocha. mmmmm. The last photo is beautiful and peaceful. Great choices!

Sandra said...

you always always find the perfect photo for each word... these are all amazing to me... like the idea of the coasters to mark the trails, that is using their heads

What lovely winter photos. Lots of fun in the snow and on the ice. Love the chickadee photo, great capture. But I have to say my favorite it your reflect shot and the thought below it.

Jenny said...

Winter is always such a great time to just catch our breath. I don't ice fish, but it has got to be one of the most restful sports you could do. Wonder how many fish they actually catch?

Pretty pictures! That cup of mocha looks delicious right now! :)

Nicki said...

Great wintery collection. I like how the coaster was used as a trail marker, and how it equally (and coincidentally) matches up with the little bird (talk about timing!).

Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

Nice series. I thought the coffee drink was an ice cream sundae.

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

Love your shots, the warbler pic is my favorite. Great irony. That coffee drink looks great.

Birdman said...

I don't get fishin' summer or ice.

Rainey said...

Wonderful set! I think my favorite is the chickadee. What a great find!

Jackie said...

Oh my goodness these shots are all fabulous. I love them all and to pick a favorite is really difficult.

But I don't see ice fishing anymore as we moved from Maine and I love that shot. It brings back lots of good memories.

I followed you on GFC because I love your photography and I definitely want to to encourage you to keep this up!

Happy Hunting next week!:-)

love the chickadee posing and the reflect. :)

Sue said...

My husband grew up ice fishing in Chicago. I love hearing him tell about it, especially how the fish "come alive" again once you get them home.

I also love that third one, "little things."

=)

Tracey N. said...

Amazing take on this weeks prompts! Your Little things and reflect shots are stunning. I am impressed!

What a cute photo of the black-cap chickadee and its twin. The cup of Tim Horton coffee looks good – we don’t get Tim Horton here – I wish we did.

You caught lovely winter shots, everything there looks like a winter wonderland! (It's just drab greyness here:)

What a lovely series for your photo hunt. The ice fishing must be for the brave. I love the cute chickadee. And wow, the last shot is gorgeous. Looks like a beautiful painting. Well done! Have a great week ahead.

Snowcatcher said...

The chickadee photo... an award-winner. You seriously need to find a contest for that one!

I chuckled at the kids pulling the sled across... non-snow...

edenhills said...

These are all wonderful! It looks so COLD! I love the shot of the bird by his picture.

Brooke said...

Brrrr! Your cup of looks divine though!
