Resting on the leaves…

This snowy leopard seems to be smiling.   The sun was warm for her that day.  If only I could share her comfort and cuddle up right by her side! 🙂

Ghost Bird

Ghost Bird

The Hermit Thrush guards a small nook in the moss covered rocks. Jumping behind ferns, it becomes a blur; a rustling shadow, a yellow light. What fairy land does it protect? Where does it go? Of what places does it know? Hidden behind the green, moving among the unseen, a ghost bird beckons us softly, cautiously showing the way.

Creeping Ice

Creeping Ice

The ice receded, though some people saw snow fly this morning. Rain, mud, and decaying vegetation all around. Spring has come. Now I wait for the return of my beloved Winter. Gone, but never forgotten.

The melting snow and rain left the water ways dynamic. The turbulence was inspiring.

As Above, So Below – The last days of Winter

As Above, So Below - The last days of Winter

Technically it’s the first day of spring, but this image sums up my feelings about it all. I’m always sad to see the Winter leave. This was taken in February at the Marsh. I’ll be looking forward to seeing more Winter next year (or in a week or two if the “Powers that Be” still favor a late snow, like in the past).

Sycamore Over Water

Sycamore Over Water

Another view from the Marsh. The sycamore tree is particularly beautiful in the winter season and one of my favorite trees to photograph.

A face in the snow?

Faces in the snow

Captured this unique image from the bridge over-looking a small creek. I was fascinated by how much it resembled a profile, like faces from art-deco paintings I’ve seen or architecture of that ilk (maybe I just thought this because of the juxtaposition of steel girders from the bridge). It’s also a little like Jack Frost himself, blowing icy cold wind over the parks and glens. That works for me too. (I kind of like winter *understatement*). I’d be curious to hear what it evokes in other people’s imaginations.
