Cooper's Hawk

I was surprised to see this hawk just sitting in the pines just above my bird feeder.
He stayed almost an hour and only looked around occasionally
and then preened himself and took off without bothering any of the other birds.

Utter Madness!

I stole this idea from NM Bill.
He captured this photo somewhere between Dayton, Ohio and Las Cruces, New Mexico.
Probably closer to NM, I'd say.
I of course Photoshopped more cows into the photo...

Keeping Warm These Days

With temps in the single digits and snow flurries on the way
you gotta "puff-out" and keep warm!

Snow Bunny Illusion

This "giant" snow bunny, with its tail falling off, was sculpted
by NM Bill's lovely wife.
After you click on the photo to enlarge it...

It appears to be about 5-feet tall in a parking lot!
However, it is on top of a concrete picnic table and is only 6-inches high.

Sky Friday

A few years ago, this actually happened to me.
I was coming home from Beachwood when a semi
lost a load of snow off of its roof.
When my windshield cleared, I ended up on an off ramp in the town of Bath!

Winter Sunrise

This fiery sky caught my attention the other morning.
Winter temps have reached 50°+ this week.
Today might reach near 60° but heavy rainfall will accompany it.

Sky Friday

Mr. Cardinal is basking in the first sunny day in a week.
I know there's not much "sky" in the photo but the sun alone is shining brightly.
Temperature is 25° and the sky is clear.
