As the last few days of winter wind down,I will share a few more winter images.Yes, I'm waiting for spring and green grass, but winter has a beauty all it's own.
This is at Lake Minniwasta, just west of Morden. I love it when the snow outlines every structure like this.
At home on my yard, a few of the seeds from last fall are still hanging onto the branches.Here they have a pretty snowy cap.
The Black-billed Magpie is known to be very shy, at least around here so I was thrilled to capture this, less than perfect, shot as he took off.
While staying in my kitchen,I can get shots like this.Somehow this Blue Jay does not look impressed. Is it the lady with the camera, or is the snow? I guess we'll never know.
It was a cold day when these images were captured.You can tell that the bird is all fluffed up to try to stay warm. Yes, they do have a constant supply of sunflower seeds and peanuts, so they are well taken care of.
