  1. Oh I sure hope we have seen the last of snow. I have so much snow in my yard from the snow that came in October and stayed. Have to love my part Canada . Lovely shots.

  13. LMAO! Love the post. But most awesome photos! I absolutely love the bottom one where the bird in the bottom right looks like an angel (without a head heehee). Too cool.

  14. It seems as though Winter is reluctant to make it's retreat this year. There are the first signs of Spring but I'm hungry for more.

  15. Gorgeous photos! Mother nature just wants you to appreciate spring even more when it arrives! ..of course that's easy for me to say here in San Diego :)

  17. I live in Palm Springs and the heat has been in the triple digits the last 3 days. Its so hard to imagine snow when its so hot here. At least you got some beautiful shots.

  18. Beautiful photos! We've gone from warm to cold to tornado warnings and are just now warning up again. Hope spring comes your way soon!

  19. I love your fluttering birds, Beth ~

    So sorry to hear of your weather. Warmth is coming though. I just know it.

  20. Love seeing your flutterers, it reminds me of my time in Wisconsin last summer. But the snow! You might not be bitter, but I am trying to control my tongue. We didn't have the snow, but those darn black clouds and rain just won't go away.

  21. It had to be Mother Nature playing her own April Fool's joke! Lucky you to see the beauty in the snow and capture these lovely images.

  22. Oh Beth you're in such a good mood when it comes to mother nature...knowing you're fed up with snow and long for spring.
    But these pictures are goreous, love those birds (we don't have those on this side of the pond).
    May warm winds blow soon upon your home my friend.
    Hugs Dagmar

  25. D was there Thursday and couldn't believe how it snowed--we had a sunny day north of you. Those poor birds. They need those feeders!

  26. Exquisitely beautiful..extraordinary bird images. We - too - got snow on April Fool's Day. Not a funny joke..but pretty!

  27. Mother Nature appears to have a giant bug... oh, nevermind...
    love the photo. it is sunny here today and almost 50. heat wave!
    i went outside to cut down my tall grasses which was quite the feat considering that I can't squat. but it was wroth it just to be outside.

  30. Love these birds in flight, Beth - difficult to capture, the colors are muted and yet striking.
