The winter in these parts can seem long, partly because the temperatures drop so low that I don't even care to go out.When a day of milder weather breaks the cold spell, that means getting out of the house and looking for photo opportunities.One place that often has Bald Eagles is near the Pembina Valley and also near a Hutterite Colony. On this particular day I saw several Eagles there.The Colony puts some refuse on the field so it is a ready buffet for the birds.
Always a thrill to see one of these, whether in the sky or perched somewhere.
There must have been some tasty treat right here.Two Black-billed Magpies and a Bald Eagle.These birds were quite a distance away so the quality of the shots is not great.
While sitting in the car, waiting for the eagles a group of Hutterite young folks were going for a walk down the road.I got this picture through the car window.
Later that same day the sky showed some interning cloud patterns.
The end of the day and the snowy field gives an idea of the cold weather.
Just to warm things up a little, here is a summer photo, complete with a butterfly.
Whether an Eagle in the sky or a small butterfly on a flower,God's fingerprint is on each one.
