Some More Critters at the Park

Here's a woodpecker and his handy-work and a very happy squirrel.

More Chickadees

I set out to find some ducks, but there were none. Just chickadees everywhere.

The Snow is Almost Gone

Here's a little experiment I did last year. It's 32 pictures taken from April 5th to 22nd of the snow melting in the front yard.

Back to Spring and then Winter Again

Where were we? Oh yeah, we went from spring back to winter, then a bit of summer. While I was out there were a couple days of spring again, the tulips are starting to poke their heads up, but then we went straight back to winter. Crazy weather!

My Computer Broke

After 18 years of using hard drives I've never had one completely fail on me. Until last night. The computer works all right, I just can't access that drive, the one with all my photos! Yeah, that one. I've got them backed up, of course (You do do back ups, right??), but my backup is more of a dump, not very organized. So now I need to find another drive, get it in and get organized again. Good excuse to get a bigger drive, I guess, I was starting to run low on space. Hopefully I won't be out of commission for too long.

We skipped spring and went right into summer! Not really, the strawberries are from Florida, not sure where the pineapple is from. They were on sale this week. Yum!

Winter Again!

After a beautiful weekend of Spring, we get buried again in 32 cm (a little over a foot) of snow.

Found a bunch of chickadees on my walk last Saturday. They're pretty fast and don't stay still for very long. It was difficult to get a clear shot and with all the branches in the way, auto-focus was no good. It was good manual focus practice. None of them are as clear as I'd like.
