Birds, & Brush!
I am behind in posting photos from the end of our Savannah trip, our Florida trip
and getting back to the U.P.
in the late winter/early spring.
So today, I am posting a mixture of these photos to catch up a bit.
For some reason, Cardinals are elusive for me to capture with my lens.
They do not come to my feeders or come to my yard often.
So, when we were visiting my cousin in Savannah, I was thrilled to see a Cardinal in her back yard.
Of course, just my luck....
she told me it was elusive for her to try and take pictures of it, too..
the challenge was ON.
I must have had to take 20 photos to get a few good ones but at least I did capture one or two:
I was thrilled to see the little female too!:
When we were hiking in Savannah, we saw some awesome driftwood
and old wood on the forest floor:
I love doing them in black and white too:
We came back home.
But, there was hope!
A few geese had flown from the south back up to the north, as we saw in this pond:
I was so happy to see that we had received
the FIRST sign of spring....
the geese were back!
The geese were back!!!
