I often see Turkey Vultures flying over my property. They are not the prettiest bird, but are so graceful in flight, I enjoy having them around.
They rarely come close enough to be photographed, so I was very surprised when this one landed on my line post the other day. He did not stay long, but I managed to get a couple of shots.
This Dragonfly rested on my window screen one chilly morning. He stayed until the day warmed up, so I had a rare opportunity to get some closeup shots.
At this time of year, turtles come out of the ponds to lay their eggs. I found this one on my lawn last week. I have come across a couple of good sized ‘snappers’ lately, but I make sure to keep my distance from them!
Two days in a row of sunshine and mild temperatures encouraged me to get out with my camera.
Looks like my neighbor’s Forsythia is almost ready to bloom.
My entire state is basically under house arrest until at least the end of April, so it was a real treat to be outside enjoying the sunshine. I have been spending far too much time in the recliner lately!
Unpredictable weather has kept me housebound a lot lately, so when Sunday blessed us with sunshine and milder temperatures I dropped everything and drove to Port Huron.
Lake Huron looks pretty much ice free, but I spotted quite a few ice floes floating by.
We have had more rain than snow this winter and experts are warning that water levels on the Great Lakes are at an all time high. I could certainly see a difference here since my last visit.
Waves have created some interesting ice sculptures along the shore. Despite the sunshine, the wind off the lake had quite a bite to it. I would taken more photos, but frozen ears and fingers soon had me retreating to the warmth of the car! I tend to be a fair weather photographer after all! 🙂
