Yowzer! These are GREAT!
Great photos. I love the one of the bird. It looks and feels a bit more like spring here too but we're in for a mixed bag of weather for the week including snow on the weekend. :(
The warming up is exciting. Thanks for this collage.
Great pose of the kingfisher! He has some beautiful markings. They are so darn hard to photograph.
I love the fluff of the cattail.
Love your cattail's!
A great mosaic! Love the Kingfisher.
Love your collages. Not warm yet? You do need to come visit Ocala - it was in the 80s here today and for the rest of the week. In the 50s at night. Very nice. Most of contrarion Ontarions have headed north, however.
We've got a really nice villa for sale in Stone Creek - just think you could spend your winters down here! :)
How lovely to see birds and water and grass! Nice shots. (Minus 11 C here this morning...)
Such a gorgeous shot of the kingfisher. Spring is getting closer it seems!
Let's hope all these birds get a bit of warmth very soon, great shots!
The osprey has wonderful coloring!
Hi! Very lovely birds. Beautiful captures.
Super series of 'almost spring' images EG.
Oh I love Nature notes it is like going to a beautiful classroom. B
that kingfisher is adorable...
What a great signs of spring mosaic and I appreciate your taking the time to describe the photos. Need some education about what I'm seeing in nature.
Your notes are wonderful!
Have a nice day:)
Wonderful~ Happy for you that it is almost spring. I am so envious that you got the Kingfisher photo! I have tried forever...they fly the minute I even think camera.!
I like your combination of pics here. All wonderful birds with the promise that spring is just around the corner. They're coming through down here and making their way up north:)
What a great photo of that Kingfisher! And I'm envious of your Osprey sighting - I love seeing them. I love how numerous the bird calls are in our yard now - so happy for spring's return!
Oh, I would so love for a kingfisher to sit still long enough for me to capture him...
As for ice--it was 80º F here today!
lovely collage, such a handsome kingfisher
Nice collage! Looks like the kingfisher turned back to say 'Hi' to us. :)
I haven't seen a kingfisher here yet but some other really hungry migrants have been in the yard..Michelle
