Our snowy nature weekend
Some of you may recall last summer that I was asking everyone about their cameras (see link below). I am pleased to report that Santa got my note and brought me a Canon S3 IS. Thank-you Brenda for your recommendation - we love it! The new camera got a workout this weekend. All these creatures were photographed this past week.
An owl in our barn window.
We were amazed yesterday to find this little hawk perched on the railing of our back door twice during the day. The first photo was taken through the glass on two doors and the second through one pane of glass.
A windswept chickadee out the living room window.
Some deer bedding down in the snow filled hedges.
And when the sun came out today I found these odd creatures in the garden.
I'm not sure what species they are but the tall one on the right can use power tools so I got him to blow snow into a flower bed that usually needs moisture because it is located in open area where the wind just blows the snow away.
A lot of the snow has melted today. I think I will get some more winter sowing done tomorrow while I am waiting for it all to disappear.
