In spite of the portents we looked for some Warblers yesterday. Heard some but saw none. In spite of today’s rain we’ll try again. In the meantime here are some pics from yesterday’s local travels:
Trillium erectum after a rainshower …
First wild columbine of the season (known locally as “hunneysuckle”)
One of 4 separate families being reared in the Britt area … so far.
I think that these pixie cups are growing larger…
A Blue Jay around the spot where I saw a pair carrying twigs the other day — an area worth monitoring:
Black flies are out so the blueberries are in incipient bloom phase:
Wild strawberries are blooming profusely now …
First “Hunneysuckle” about to open:
One of a pair of Sandhill Cranes across the way …
I cannot resist photographing these beauties. One of these days I’ll get a
really good one! Maybe. …….
Same with these!
Couple of fiddleheads exchanging gossip?
Mom and Pop Horsetail in their leggings?
Emergent lily pad, still with its red pigment. These seem to turn from red to green as they lift to the surface light. I wonder why that is? Why do they start off red?
Marsh Marigold in its favourite, waterside, habitat.
We are getting close ( two weeks) to the first anniversary of this blog. What should change? I do know that I am spending way too much time on it, to the detriment of other interests/projects and house/yardkeeping!
Should I cut down on the number of photos each post?
Should I cut down on the number/frequency of posts?
Should I quit? (NO applause, please!)
It IS fun, though!
