We had a long thaw in January 2017, encouraging birdies to forage, exposing ground and causing waterways to flow. Some examples:
Ground is showing on Hwy 554 near Dillon …
Pine Siskins foraging for grit …
Oil storage tanks come down at the CPR Britt fuel facility….
Water on the thin (10cm) ice at St Amants dockage ….
Roaring Magnetawan River at Ahmic Lake outflow …
Classic silo near Town of Magnetawan …
Late afternoon on Hwy 159 …
What can follow a thaw? Yes, some cold sunshiny days, which ended our month of January.
Hi Hi and THANK YOU – really liked the birds’ pixs and the “Ahmic Lake” reminded me of your much-previous Malaysia pix.. ‘It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.’ ..Henry David Thoreau plus this one ..”Ah, but a man’s reach should exceed his grasp, Or what’s a heaven for?” Andrea del Sarto
Remind me of the much-previous Malaysia pix! They have gone into my memory vortex!
The photo of the jay is stunning!!! Love the contrast in colour between the bird and the background!
Yes, that photo was taken with my wonderful Leica 100-400 mm (200-800 mm EFL) lens on the Panasonic Lumix GH4 camera. Great colour rendition with very little work in Lightroom post processing. That is a case where good focusing with good equipment yields good results.
