Once again I am sharing iPhone shots,so keep that in mind.The phone takes great pictures,but can just not compare with a good DSLR.
It is March 1,and by the calendar it should soon be spring,but when I look at the thermometer,it does not feel or look like it.Right now my thermometer shows -26C or -14.8 F.Either way that is cold.
I have been dreaming about spring and the first event that happens and is actually underway right now,is the annual Hawkwatch at the Pembina Valley.
So far the numbers are very low,but as soon as those temperatures moderate,I am sure the activity will pick up.
Here are a few shots taken in 2013.Looking at them,makes me long for this time even more.
You can see that the early stages of this event are not for the faint of heart.There is still snow on the ground and any wind makes it feel very cold. It may be cold but the friendships and fellowship are warm and makes one want to go back time and again.
Given a little more time and the snow is gone and the weather is much more enjoyable.
You can see by the short sleeves that it must be a pleasant day.Notice also the blue of the sky,that is mostly a good thing. Sometimes it seems that on a clear day the birds fly much higher than on cloudy days.
Spring will come as it always does.I am waiting for the time when the ice will have melted and I can again get pictures similar to this.
With the warmer weather the variety of birds increases.Hopefully it won't be too long before I can head to Winnipeg again and have a photo shoot with the Canada Geese.
It's not all about birds and cameras in spring.Suddenly I realize just how dirty my windows look.
Steve is so gracious as to clean them for me when I ask.It takes him a lot less time and the windows are nice and clean.Kai just likes to enjoy the warm spring days and run around without heavy boots and jackets. You may have noticed some marks on her face.She had her face painted at some party.
As I wait for the warm spring weather I need to remind myself of the following:
Do not anticipate trouble,or worry about what may never happen.
Keep in the sunlight.
