Winter Calls


Why only days ago the cold moved in, but fall was still around as I looked at a Monet shot on a pond. That winter thought was still in the wind as it pierced through all the layers to get to us. I had a last fling with fishing, until I drill holes in the ice. Caught some nice Rainbow Trout and fixed all of us a great meal around them. Daisy even wanted to try it out early trying to sneak up to the table when I started placing food. Hmmmmm a certain cute puppy gets in a lot of mischief.


Cedar Waxwing



Trumpeter Swans, I saw 17 on this lake
 









And then there is today, bitter cold and some of that white stuff to give the land a blanket while it rests. I am waiting for a new snow blower to arrive maybe today. Yesterdays snow was light and fluffy and easy to clear off.

  2. Great photos! I especially love the lily pads. It looks like a trail that I would like to follow. And the pups are looking sweet!

  4. Winter certainly has established itself. I appreciate the deer pictures. I cannot tell you how many have run right out in front of my car the last couple of weeks. It is a good thing I watch carefully for them.

  6. Winter's first blast is a little hard to take. The dogs don't seem to mind. Feeds are not picking up my posts so you have to click on me to get my posts.

  8. That first cedar waxwing shot is really nice. Love the shot of the buck in the trees, too. And the one of the deer running across the road. The swans look huge next to the Canada geese. Fun to see Lily and Daisy in their winter coats.

  13. I still had some leaves to rake out of gardens...but the snow came and covered them all up. I guess that will have to wait til spring. I love seeing Cedar Waxwings too.

  14. Yes, it does look as if WINTER is here…. We haven't had any snow yet--but we've had ice (yuk) and it's been COLD.

    Love your photos of all of the critters… I always feel sorry for the critters out there in winter.. I am extra specially nice to my birds during winter…

    Those Swans are gorgeous.

    Merry Christmas.
    Hugs,
    Betsy

  17. The only deer I have seen are some by the roadside or in the fields as we travel back roads. I enjoy your shots in the wild much more, Steve.
