We've had a string of days with spring weather although it's supposed to turn cold again.
My hellebore (lenten rose) above was beaten down by the snow and ice but is still a harbinger of spring.
The birds watched the sunset with me one evening after the rain ended.
I was photographing the sunset from my window and the birds were in the tree tops.
Most of the birds left but there was one that watched the sunset as long as I did.
A bird was watching the sunrise with me one morning below.
Male cardinals usually stand out but the one below found a tree with camouflage to suit his feathers.
I love bare winter trees but am beginning to look for signs of new growth.
A few of my daffodils are already blooming.
The female cardinal below was keeping an eye on me.
The titmouse below was also watching me.
Titmouse move so fast it's hard for me to shoot them (with my camera of course).
We've had some beautiful skies in between gray periods.
The rest of the shots are from a walk this Sunday.
It was a great day for a walk.
The cormorants are still at the lake but they usually leave in the spring and return in the fall.
The gulls also leave this lake in the spring and return by late fall or early winter.
The gulls must breed somewhere else because there are gulls year round where I live but they aren't at this particular lake after spring gets underway or in the summer.
I always start watching for them to return in the late fall.
The great blue heron are at the lake year round.
