Birds and Winter Scenes Continue!

I have been out taking a zillion Spring photos here in the U.P.
over the past few weeks,
and still have some winter ones to show you!

I think this is a Brown Thrasher.
We had never had this bird in our feeders before:

The Sturgeon River winding its way to Canyon Falls in January:

The track was so packed on the way to Canyon Falls, that we didn't even need snowshoes to hike in!:

I think I take a photo of this tree every season that I take the walk down to the falls...I just love how it "hangs on" with its roots:

Five mighty pines laden with snow against the blue, blue Janaury sky:

This hardy pair of mallards stayed on open river waters near Michigamme all winter!:

I LOVED this snow ladened tractor by the barn when we went for a winter ride...
I made my hubby stop the car so I could capture it with my lens!:

I hope something makes you stop your car today
to capture your imagination and let you linger on the wonders of nature!

Don't forget to enter your May 2012

Great photos as usual. I have an old car that I want to stop and take shots of along the interstate. I don't have the camera or the time to stop. Someday I can get it. I don't want to get hit by any cars or trucks though.

Wow - snow. We didn't even get a hard freeze this year. Worked for me, but I so remember the beauty of snow. Spent lots of years up north.
