Cabin fever blues and cold buns….


Again, we are having cold, freezing moisture.  It is keeping me inside, as moisture and cameras do not mix.   Of course, that is just a good excuse, as I don’t like to freeze my buns off either.  I will just post a few of my photos from the past few days, when it was nice enough to get few exposures.

Eastern Phoebe found something to sing about.

  1. Poor Bob! I do sympathise, and I hope the weather changes for the better soon. We have all had enough! Having said that, we have had a couple of bright, fine days just recently, and there’s blue sky here at present. I love your selection of pics, especially the Meadowlark. He is like sunshine in bird form!

    • Hi, Jo, I was just looking for sympathy, and I got some from you. 🙂 So sweet of you. 🙂 But things aren’t really as bad as I made it out to be. It is cold here but sunny. Glad you liked the photos. I’ll have more soon. 🙂

  2. Down here in the valley, it is supposed to be cold over the next couple of days. And wet, too. But cold is such a relative term. Our friends up north (Ontario, Canada) really know the meaning of cold this year.

  3. Love them all Bob but the Great Blue Heron is becoming on of my favorites.Lovely bird and hard as heck to get a close up of them but always worth the try.
    We are having a mix of rain and sleet right now but Spring is near. Be warm and may you,and the rest of us, get a few soul-invigorating photo taking days soon!

  4. Beautiful shots. Cheers me right up. Birds are singing around here too, I heard a House Finch this morning, “Spring is coming, regardless of the weather.” And I saw a Turkey Vulture yesterday but no one will ever believe me. Happy hibernation. 🙂

  5. At least you’re getting something out of inclement weather! We got a good nature walk, but the birds stayed hidden for some reason. And we wound up wet in the end from the light rainfall. That meadowlark is beautiful.

    • I will be glad to see and end to this “never-ending” winter, but thankful it is mild comparing to the people up north. Glad you liked the Meadowlark. Stay patient, the birds will come out from hiding soon, Shannon.

    • Many thanks, mud fur, I appreciate it. I hope you will visit again. My lens is one of the new Tamron 150-600mm zoom. It is mostly replacing my big Canon 500mm prime lens.
