This is an exciting time of year. The world around me is coming to life again, after a long quiet and white winter.
One of the early signs of spring is the return of the birds.Raptors or birds of prey, such as hawks and eagles, are among the first to show up.
Looking up and seeing a Bald Eagle, even an immature, like this one, is always a treat.
The Canada Geese are some of the ones to return early. They are often back when most of the lakes and ponds are still frozen, so they have to land on the ice.
It doesn't take long for small puddles of water to thaw and give those reflections of the nearby trees.
Before the snow melts in the bushes the White-tailed Deer can often be seen foraging in the fields.
As the temperatures warm up, many fields have large puddles of water on them.This water runs off fairly quickly so it is not a concern for the farmers.
In the previous shot you could see the water dropping into a small opening. I may not see those large,beautiful waterfalls, but I still enjoy even these small falls and the sound of the running water.
I started this post with an eagle and I will end it with a beautiful red-tailed Hawk, soaring in that blue sky.
Something to Think About:
Know who you are
Accept who you are
Be who you are
